Wordsworth wrote an endless poem in blank verse on” the growth of a poet’s mind.” I shall attempt a more modest feat for a more distracted age: a blog, “Things which a Lifetime of Trying to Be a Poet has Taught Me.”
Once upon a time a group of fishermen left an entire boatload of fish to rot in the sun. On another occasion a Tax Collector left his office full of government receipts unattended. None of these people ever looked back. What could have gotten them to act like that?
COMMENTARY, LUKE 5:27-28
Who would have thought old Levi would be able
To leave the money lying on the table?
He wasn’t, until Jesus changed his mind;
He was not able then to stay behind!
