What Fills You Up?

(if you are viewing this via email, the website has a recording of this poem and commentary; click the title above)


I wrote this poem in response to what I was seeing in Luke chapter twelve.

Luke wants us to pay attention to several things. Some of them I haven’t figured out (e.g., Luke’s repeated mention of the growing crowds). Some of them, I THINK I’m starting to figure out, like how Jesus valued the anticipated gift of the Holy Spirit. How much do I value—and rely on—that gift? What outcomes do I seek to ensure by other means? What storehouses am I foolishly building?
