Growing into Christ

The Lord didn’t argue politics

Or say ‘I told you so’

He didn’t say ‘you should you must’

Or tell you where to go

He didn’t give out lectures

Or ever pontificate

He gave his time to everyone

Come they soon or late


No, the Lord told stories

To reveal the world to us

And then invited everyone

To sort out fact from fuss

We are all in this together

That’s how he played the game

And each one of us is different

And somehow all the same


He is in all he did

The perfect human being

And we can be just like him

If we adopt his way of seeing

The achievement of our life

To be the best that we can be

And that means love thy neighbour

Now do you see?
