Lessons from Literature: Winnie the Pooh

“Sing Ho! for the life of a Bear!
Sing Ho! for the life of a Bear!
I don’t much mind if it rains or snows,
‘Cos I’ve got a lot of honey on my nice new nose!
I don’t much care if it snows or thaws,
‘Cos I’ve got a lot of honey on my nice clean paws!
Sing Ho! for a Bear!
Sing Ho! for a Pooh!”
Winnie-the-Pooh chap 8

Winnie the Pooh was a great work of A. A. Milne and I imagine the author had a warm grin across his face as he created him.

I wonder if Milne created Pooh to pass on that grin to his readers, to bring warm cheer into the world, ’cause that’s just what he’s done.  (Plus made a fortune for Disney, but that’s another story. 🙂 )

You’re a great work of God’s, too, Christian.  His poem.  That’s what the word “workmanship” means in the verse below ~ poem

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works..” Ephesians 2:10 

light and cheer, that’s what we’re created for in Christ Jesus…

“You are the light of the world.”  Matthew 5:14

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

And, do you know, God made the same comforting promise to us that Winnie the Pooh made to Christopher Robin ~~

“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together keep me in you heart, I’ll stay there forever.”  (see John 14:16-17)  Christ in our hearts ~~…Christ in you, the hope of glory…”  Colossians 27 Is your heart empty?  Would you like to be a poem?  Click here to meet your Author,  and then “keep him in your heart…forever.”
