Just some fun today.
Can you and your kids figure out this riddle?
Adam, God made out of dust,
But thought it best to make me first.
So I was made before a man,
To answer God’s most holy plan.
A living being I became,
And Adam gave to me my name.
I, from his presence, then withdrew,
And more of Adam I never knew.
I did my Maker’s law obey,
Nor never went from it astray.
Thousands of miles I go in fear,
But seldom on earth do I appear.
For purpose wise which God did see,
He put a living soul in me.
A soul from me God did claim
And took from me the soul again.
I am the same
As when first made.
Without hands, feet, or soul,
I travel on from pole to pole.
I labor hard by day and night,
To fallen man I give great light.
Thousands of people, young and old,
Will, by my death, great light behold.
No right or wrong can I conceive,
The Scriptures I cannot believe.
Although my name therein is found,
They are, to me, an empty sound.
No fear of death doth trouble me,
Real happiness I’ll never see.
To heaven I shall never go,
Nor will I go to hell below.
Now when, these lines, you slowly read,
Go search your Bible with all speed.
For that my name is written there,
I do, honestly, to you, declare…
