I know of a man who though a king was born in a manger
He lived at a carpenter’s house with not many luxuries
Parting the glory he once had, became a common man
I was thinking hard if there has been a time when he compalined
If he ever murmured about his earthly struggles
All I could find was that he always spoke facts but never grumbled
He said he dint have a place to lay his head, while the foxes have holes and birds nest
But he never questioned His Father, Why should I not have a bed?
I thought perhaps because he had supernatural powers it was easy for him
But, the secret was simply that he knew his purpose was to fulfill God’s will!!
When the people of the world questioned him he never argued!
Tough situations dint bother him, but he always gave solutions!
He trusted His father for four drachma coins from the mouth of the fish
Not to feast or have a heavy meal but to pay taxes and abide by the law
He choose twelve ordinary men to be part of his ministry
Taught them not with words but by acts even if it meant washing their feet!
Kings of kings and Lord of Lords was questioned by an earthly king
With all his glory he could have justified his calling but He chose few words
If today I’m called after this Great Man, do I reflect his character?
Do I grumble about my struggles or say May your will be done?
Do my actions speak volumes or my words make a jarring noise?
Have I recognized my purpose in life is to fulfill his will?
