It’s over 2000 years since Jesus entered this world,
To TEACH us HOW we are to live,
The greatest instructions that He ever imparted
Were to LOVE and also FORGIVE.
What have we done with His message today?
We hate…and trash talk …and are vile,
When the man came to tell us the opposite to do,
He PREACHED LOVE…..to be kind all the while.
Our selfish, self-centeredness gets in the way,
Our PRIDE and EGO run the show,
WE want what we want…..no matter the cost,
Why we do things….we don’t even know.
He said that LOVE is patient and kind,
Smile in passing…..instead of a sneer,
Be tolerant, speak positive when sharing our thoughts,
And not act out of hatred and fear.
Jesus came to this world, as it’s guiding LIGHT,
His beam is what we need to follow,
If we are to be….. Happy, Joyous and Free,
And not live a life that is hallow.
Whatever happened in our life….to Jesus?
Do we find that He is still around?
Today take a look… and open His BOOK,
That’s where the blueprint for living is found.
