Jesus Never Rode A Bike

Jesus never rode a bike

          When he was a little boy.

He had fun in other ways,

          And wants you to know his joy.

So ride this bike, enjoy it,

          Have fun, and maybe you’ll race!

Jesus made it just for you;

          It’s all because of His grace.

It’s Christmas, Jesus’ birthday.

          So have fun, and shout “Yahoo!”

Don’t forget the biggest gift:

          That Jesus sure does love you.

I penned this piece of doggerel for a friend and church member who collects, fixes up, and gives away bicycles to kids who come to our December Food & Clothing Bank. His generosity and love of the gospel are far more impressive than my poetry! But when that kid gets his/her bike, he’ll also get a Christmas card with this verse on it. Feel free to use it yourself.
