Corinthian Dirt

Deeper than deep
   God dug into Corinthian dirt,
       breaking through 'devil may care'
           and far beyond the 'ne-er do well,'
And planted Good News
   in the heart and soul of sin's sin,
       furrows readied to grow good seed,
           to raise up a crop to follow His Son.
If God can harvest crops
   where even rocks praise Him,
       He can cultivate and till today's soil
          and yield a harvest a hundred times
As much as was sown
   and proclaim across time
       they too are His own.

Matthew 13:1-23
1 Corinthians 5:1; 6:9-11
