A Great Man

There once walked a great man. He walked throughout the Holy Land. As he walked, he spread a message for all to hear. For those too stubborn to listen, he sadly shed a tear. At times those tears must have formed puddles at his holy feet. Yet, with those who spread the devil's word he knew he must compete. When put upon the cross, he only hoped he'd left behind enough true believers of his word to influence all mankind. The believers did a marvelous job of spreading his parables and stories, and of making Christians feel more whole by basking in those glories. The Bible was written to help the believers spread his wondrous word, and to give our troubled souls a peaceful feeling, like that of a soaring bird. Since we are only human we need his guidance in our lives. It's with the help of his grace, compassion, and understanding that this believer thrives.
