The marks of love

I, Tom, had [the thought of using] a vision [as a literary device to convey an idea that occurred to me].

I found myself brought before the Just Judge, and I said to Him, "I did my best to love those Your Father and my Father gave me to love."

And He answered me, "Great! Show me."

And I replied, "Um... you mean, like, give an example?"

And He said, "No, show me. Show me the marks your love has left on you. Like these."

And He held out His hands to me.

I stuck my own hands in my pockets and said, "Oh, you mean that kind of love."
