What Is The Measure Of A Man...

 

What is the measure of a man?
Is it his strength or his walk
is it his money or intelligent talk?


What is his measure and by whom is he measured?
As humans we measure by sight and worth
we measure by wealth and measure by works...


We measure by self and what we think one should be
and in that measure we forget the man we cannot see...
The man within... the man only seen by God
the man that he measured with an old rugged cross...
His measure is love and forgiveness and grace
His measure is the Father looking with mercy on the human race...


So the next time we look on a man to see his worth
let us be reminded of the price paid on this earth
by One that has everything, yet gave it all
that we could stand on level ground at the foot of His cross...
