“The measure of a man is his standing before God.
The measure of a man is his relationship with God.
is his walk in righteousness.
is his integrity of self.
is the standards he imposes on his life.
The measure of a man is not to be as a puff of wind in a paper bag,
as a drop of muck in a paddock filled with cows,
as a deserted web found blowing in the wind.
The measure of a man requires stability with progress,
honour with a firm handshake which carry all his promises,
a history which drags no shame within its shadow of inspection.
The measure of a man has violence set aside,
has trust and truth as companions every day
has a mouth of praise and worship attached to the fear of God.
The measure of a man has wisdom with perception,
has knowledge without deception,
has the gifts of God alive and embedded in his temple.
The measure of a man is determined by his goals,
by the means employed in achievement,
by the relationship of his spirit to his soul,
by his dealings with his fellow man.
The measure of a man is not determined by his height,
by his weight,
by his girth,
by his birth.
The measure of a man is how he treats those he encounters in his daily walk,
with his heart in service,
with his wealth accumulated as sufficient for his needs.
The measure of a man attends his tasks with joy,
completes them on the schedule which is set,
has a conscience happy with the outcome of the achievements of each day.
The measure of a man can be in tune attending to the reaching for the stars,
in tune with the rearing of his family,
in tune with contentment that all is well within his mortal life,
in tune with his future of progression within the realm of God.
The measure of a man leaves a legacy for his life’s work,
leaves a legacy of inspiration,
leaves a legacy involving both the secular and the sacred,
the worldly and the divine,
the maturing of man and the maturity of God.
The measure of a man lives a life reflective of his stature before God.”
