A Poem: A Man Just

A remarkable life, and more....

This short poem is a reminder that Christ himself experienced everything we experience in this mortal world. The stories and accounts written of him tend to omit those mundane events in the life of the Son of God, though he called himself Son of Man and reverenced his Heavenly Father.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A man just lived.

He ate and drank.

He slept and woke.

He had pain and joy.

He dreamed and acted.

He asked and questioned.

He looked with observation.

He grew and waxed strong in

spirit, filled with wisdom and the

grace of God was upon him always.

A man just lived, ate, drank, slept

and woke, had pain, joy, dreamt

and acted, asked, questioned,

looked, observed, strong in

spirit, full of wisdom and

full of grace which was

of God and was God.

A just man lived,

and lives still.

Just as much as we would all like this to happen, if you feel this says something others could appreciate and pass along, please feel free to do so. My intent was just what you yourself got from this Hub. I would hope that others might as well.

All though I'm not religous, I enjoyed this poem.

What is it that a person means when they write or comment that "I'm not religious"? Perhaps that is as undefined as saying "I'm religious." There are epochs which can be traced to key human figures (Confucius, Buddha, Moses, Abraham, Mohammed, Jesus, Gandhi, etc.)

Admiring these figures we seek to identify ourselves with their thoughts and teachings to be more like them. If we have heroes, we imagine what it would be like to be as they are. Ideas are neutral. How men regard and act on them can at times be very dangerous. This poem is a reminder that these figures in their mortal lives dealt with what we deal with in our lives, but did so extraordinarily.

My testimony is that he is the Christ and that he lives still.
