"The world stands out on either side
No wider than the heart is wide;
Above the world is stretched the sky
No higher than the soul is high.
The heart can push the sea and land
Farther away on either hand'
The soul can split the sky in too,
And let the face of God shine through,
But East and West will pinch the heart
That can not keep them pushed apart,
And he whose soul is flat--the sky
Will cave in on him and by."

Those poignant words

from "Renascene" by Edna St. Vincent

Millay can be said about the person

that isn't a Christian. Apart from

God,a person's soul is flat. A hole

exists in the person that cannot be

filled with material possessions,

relationships, empty philosophies, or

drugs, alcohol and sex.

A non-Christian's soul remains

flat until the person encounters the

living Savior, Jesus Christ. Psalm

63:1 says, "my soul thirst for thee,

my flesh longs for thee in a dry and

thirsty land, where no water is."

Christ said in Mark 8:36, "what shall

it profit a man, if he shall gain the

whole world, and lose his own soul?"

Only when Christ's spirit enters

an unsaved soul, will the person fully

experience the light and life in Him.

When His spirit enteres, understanding

of Christ's birth, life, death and

resurrection, is fully understood.

Christ said, "come until me all you

that are heavy laden and burden." When

a person experiences Christ's

salvation,his or her soul will no

longer be flat but filled with His

hope and joy.

You make some great points in this intriguing piece. It makes me stop and think which is always a good thing. Be careful about quoting other works. You may have checked to see if this piece was copyright protected or in the public domain, but in case you didn't make sure anything you quote like this is in the public domain or that you have permission to use it from the author. I think you did a great job of highlighting the topic in an interesting and creative way. Well done.
