Through the Eye of a Needle

Leave all…and follow Him

That was His answer

I had stolen time out of my day

To hear the Master

(Or so they were calling Him)

I had simply asked

What must I do

To see this thing through?

He took me to the law

Familiar ground

And diligently followed

Best I could

Obedience, reverence, clean tongue

Nary a misdemeanor

From youngest days.

And wealth had come.

Hadn’t Heaven smiled?

But now the Carpenter says:

“Drop it, disdain it, divide it

…And simply follow.”

Not me, not now.

Why does this guy

Raise such excitement

Anyway?
