NATURAL SELECTION AND JESUS

 

Galapagos archipelagos

A tortoise, slow, evolving goes

And other species in the throws

Like us, in change, adapt.

 

Natural Selection onward moves

Which forcibly, the weak, removes

And plies the stronger on, which proves

Our need for Jesus now.

 

The competition Darwin learned

Is evolution’s main concern

But Jesus speaks to those who yearn

To learn more graceful ways.

 

Deeply aware of human needs,

He heals and teaches, sowing seeds

For Jesus’ hopeful vision breeds

Compassion for God’s world.

 

He contradicts conventional,

Both then and now is radical

In raising up the marginal

Like poor and weak and sad.

 

The universe in wonder made

Through God’s creative wording bade

For light upon creation played

Through Jesus to our time.

 

Now let his vision speak anew

From competition moving through

A new, evolved, enlightened view:

Compassion’s new success.

 

What Darwin found is likely right,

And Jesus died so that we might

Defend the outcast with a fight

For justice, grace and peace.

 

All tempered with God’s love designed

To change a world before resigned

To selfishness but now assigned

Evolvement through our Lord.

 

So may it be with glad intent

To know again that Jesus sent

A new selection to present:

For God so loves the world.
