Such Like Matters

"He used to talk to farmers
about corn and mustard,
wheat and tares, sheep and goats,
 and such like matters,
all purely agricultural,
and which they thoroughly understood.

He used to talk to fishermen
about matters widely different,
and such as belonged to their craft . . .
nets and fishes;

to gardeners about vines and fig trees;

to women about domestic matters,
such as come within their province . . .
kneading dough and sweeping houses.

By means of these familiar figures
He teaches lessons unheard of before . . .
lessons of Divine wisdom,
of supreme value, of sweet interest,
of infinite love, and of eternal importance. "

~ Griffith Thomas

  1. Let me guess who He is…
    Could this be Jesus, the one who knew
    what matters to address with whom?
    How beautiful are these words and images!
