A famous man might be born in a castle, in a well-cleaned, freshly painted room and clothed with a new gown bought from a designer baby clothes store. The most famous man was born in a cave, amidst smelly livestock and swaddled in scraps of cloths.

A famous manís first bed might be a fancy new bassinet with a thick comfy mattress. The most famous manís first bed was a manger with a mattress padded with prickly hay.

A famous manís first visitors might be royalty. The most famous manís first visitors were lowly shepherds, thought to be the scum of the earth.

A famous man would learn at a top notch university. The most famous man learned alone in the wilderness and was taught by the Spirit.

A famous man would relish the largest gathering of people he could get. The most famous man was unconcerned when a multitude of people left him and only twelve remained (John 6:66-67).

A famous man would be loved, admired and respected by the elite. The most famous man was hated by the elite who sought to destroy him.

A famous man might die in the most well equipped hospital with highly skilled physicians attending him. The most famous man died on a cruel cross, after he was beaten until he was not recognizable (Isaiah 52:14).

A famous man could be denied entry into heaven, but the most famous man will be King of Kings and Lord of Lords forever (Revelation 17:14).

I loved your segue into the beautiful scriptures. Very nice job with this short, but very powerful entry.

Great job. Thank you.

God Bless~

I so love this comparison of the two men. I think it is fresh and an original take on the topic.

The only read ink I have is when you are putting the Bible verse for reference have the period at the end of the sentence and not after the parentheses.

This is down in such a way it really makes the reader think about what is truly important in life. I think it is quite clever.

Oh, very nice job with this. I can see why it did well! My only suggestion would be to make it longer. :D
