In Jesus’ flashy family tree
in where sinful flowers blossom,
I feel the real original sinful one missing
But the hidden flower turns out to be Ruth
who has been fuming sweet fragrance since Genesis.
What sneaked into Boaz’ bedroom
was a scent of cheap perfume.
Her deep-rooted brand-name scent
is from Sodom crushed by raging fire.
She is a descendant of Edom
that was built on grave sin –
rooted deep in incest.
The grace that showers the world full of sin.
What blessing could be bigger since the path
through which God can come down to this world
has been found in sinful flower garden!
