crucified for being too loving and too lovable

Long ago there lived a Man who was crucified for being too loving and too lovable.

And strange to related I met him thrice yesterday.

The first time he was asking a policeman not to take a prostitute to prison; the second time he was drinking wine with an outcast; and the third time he was having a fist-fight with a promoter inside a church.

There are three miracles of our Brother Jesus not yet recorded in the Book: the first that he was a man like you and me; the second that he had a sense of humor; and the third that he knew he was a conqueror through conquered.
