The Teacher

He never taught a lesson in a classroom…
He had no tools to work with, such as blackboards, maps, or charts…
He used no subject outlines, kept no record, gave no grades…
And His only text was ancient and well-worn…
His students were the poor, the lame, the deaf the blind, the outcast-
And His method was the same with all who came to hear and learn…
He opened eyes with faith…
He opened ears with simple truth…
And opened hearts with love, a love born of forgiveness…
A gentle man, a humble man,
He asked and won no honors, no gold awards of tribute to His expertise or wisdom…
And yet this quiet teacher from the hills of Galilee has feed the needs, fulfilled the hopes,
And changed the lives of many millions…
For what He taught brought heaven to earth and revealed God’s heart to man…
