But one principle pervades. Don’t ignore it for its over-simplicity.
When ships go down, they take men with them.
Men who would float, but can’t.
Can’t, because they’re surrounded (“entangled?“) by steel that won’t.
I’ve been reading II Timothy. (yes, still.)
And I’ve been chewing this one verse for days:
“No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life…” II Timothy 2:4
Because “this life,” this vessel of pleasure, is already mine-struck.
Need I repeat myself? You’re a soldier.
Make absolutely certain you are on an unsinkable ship…
