Jesus Blessed

An ear of corn was bragging so
with kernels bright and gold.
"Just look at me!  Just look at me!"
he shouted loud and bold.
 
Well, this provoked the big, tall stalks
that stood there proud and tall.
"Without us you'd be rotting in
the field dirt, one and all.
 
The dirt felt somewhat slighted then
and said the bragging hurt.
You'd both be short and sickly if
not nourished by us dirt.
 
The water spoke up then to say
"There's something you should know.
Without the moisture from the rain
not one of you could grow."
 
The sun kept right on shining as
he heard the others boast.
He warmed the ground and ears of corn.
He knew what helped the most.
 
Humility was lacking, but
the truth the sun could see -
that all must work together long
before the corn could be.
 
The sun knew that not one of them
was better than the rest.
And each of them in their own way
was really 'Jesus blessed'.
