BODY - SOUL - SPIRIT

1 Corinthians 2:14 “But the NATURAL man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

BODY, SOUL, and SPIRIT,
Of the three…we are comprised;
Such a combination…true,
But, of such…can’t be denied!

We find ourselves made up of BODY,
And on it…all our attention goes;
We pamper it, groom it…lavish it;
Spoiled in all ways…heaven knows!

And, our SOUL is not exempt,
Mind, will, and emotions…there;
As round and round we go,
In a spin…more than we can bear.

But, there’s a third part…also,
Our SPIRIT…sure enough;
Such a mystery…so foreign,
We can’t see, feel, or touch.

BODY, SOUL, and SPIRIT,
Of the three…we are comprised;
Such a combination…true,
But, of such…can’t be denied!

Our BODY gets all the attention,
To its every whim…we cater;
Its every need and want…must be met,
Not a thought there might be something better!

We preen our BODY…then we stuff it,
With everything under the sun;
Until, we have exhausted all,
And, there’s nothing left that’s fun.

We smear it with everything on the shelf,
In an effort…this BODY to beautify;
And, in the end…we don’t succeed,
The signs of aging…we can’t rectify.

BODY, SOUL, and SPIRIT,
Of the three…we are comprised;
Such a combination…true,
But, of such…can’t be denied!

Our SOUL…the center of our being,
Mind, will, and emotions…here;
The middle ground…for us all,
Where we think, decide, and sometimes run…in fear!

The thinking part of the SOUL is good,
And, to take a stand…decide;
But, to run in fear…be blocked by tears,
The ups and downs are hard to hide.

The SOUL gives our body its expression,
Without it…where would we be?
That mind, will, and emotions,
Identify our own uniqueness…you and me.

BODY, SOUL, and SPIRIT,
Of the three…we are comprised;
Such a combination…true,
But, of such…can’t be denied!

And, SPIRIT…that sounds spooky,
But, is it really so?
For spirit is the spark of life,
And, by that spirit…our uniqueness shows!

Our SPIRIT…deep within,
We cannot see, feel, or touch;
Still, it’s the governing force,
That’s why we depend on it so much.

The SPIRIT is in control,
And, there are two forces here;
Either to do good or evil,
It’s our choice though…’tis clear.

BODY, SOUL, and SPIRIT,
Of the three…we are comprised;
Such a combination…true,
But, of such…can’t be denied!
