Our Greatest Need – A Poem

Our Greatest Need

He knew we longed for peace,

but He did not come as a general.

He knew we longed for unity,

but He did not come as a politician.

He knew we longed for wealth,

but He did not come as an economist.

He knew we longed for knowledge,

but He did not come as a scientist.

He knew we longed for laughter,

but He did not come as an entertainer.

He could have blessed us in any of these ways,

but He did not.

For He knew that our greatest need was for forgiveness,

and so He came to be our Savior.
