The Word

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Clothes, Sandals, and what else
did Jesus come to own on earth,
Yet, He was rich, God did bless
His only Son with wealth since birth.

Not what the three wise men brought,
but much wisdom, and understanding
of God’s Word, He was, and He taught,
amazing for what He knew was outstanding.

Scholars of the law bowed to His
knowledge of many good principals,
as a child, He debated, and was a whiz,
with insight of the truth, He convinces others.

As a man and teacher, Jesus had no equal,
His vast and sound interpretation of God’s Word
was as if He wrote it, or God and He were coequal
leaving His listeners astounded, and so stirred.

Yes, Jesus was very abundant in His speech,
His example of life: He lived for God alone,
His precepts and God were one, He did teach,
be enriched if now you make them your own.
