The Man of Steel

The man of steel is beyond a being; he is God’s selfie.
He is the extension of heaven in this fallen world.
He is a reflection of God’s glory even angels gazed in envy.
He is the Lord of the universe, whatever name he gives a thing, it stands forever.
Like a lion, he is the strongest among creatures, and turns not away for any.
He rides on terrifying beasts like horses.
He tames the oceans and slays the giant’s beast with his bare hands.

What is a man (of steel), that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him?

The devil works assiduously to make him fall, because if he falls, everything crumbles.
They impregnate the street with alcohol, hard drugs and pornography just to undermine his authority.
He is the centre of constant attacks, still the centre of ultimate attraction.
Yes, the man of Steel maintains contact without contamination, despite it all.
But the Lord is the saving strength of his anointed. (Psalms 28:8).

The Man of steel is also a bag of velvet.
This brutal warrior is also a lovely poet.
His hands are trained for battles, but in his arms are his wife’s haven.
He is a conqueror that brings homes his spoils (doesn’t waste it on the street).
A faithful man of honour who doesn’t take advantage of the vulnerable.
A centre of confidence to his children and their best friend.

A priest with a badge of purity,
He protects, lead and provide without excuses;
He speaks the truth even when it’s painful.
He does what is right instead of what he likes or what people like.
A Servant Leader who is not ashamed to wash the feet of his dependents even in public.
Many times, he loses his sleep, but never his peace.
Countless times he loses his appetite but never his voice.
His pride is in the prosperity of his ‘tribe’.

He becomes more bone and less skin just to be a better man.
His house is filled with books and wine.
His words are full of wisdom and grace.
For he bleeds daily to keep the world alive.
He understands we started dying since we got here so he values his time.
Yeah! He is a god, but doesn’t forget he is also a human.
He is contented with what he has, but he doesn’t stop to get more.
His heart is fixed, trusting the lord not dwelling on things he doesn’t have.
He competes with no one but himself, he doesn’t even notice someone is doing better or less.

What is the worth of the man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

He apologizes even when he is deserved to be pacified. (but is not a fool)
As gentle as a lamb, wise as a serpent and If need be, he bites.
He started being a man too early that he forgot to enjoy the view of his childhood.
How naive to think manhood was that easy as projected in movies.
Now he knows It’s a life where there is no endpoint.
Yeah, it’s a race where there is no finish line to cross.
Priesthood and manhood is his everyday work.

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL MEN’S DAY.
