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.
