the BI ble SALES man DID n't GET a SMILE.

"He who losest his life shall find it," he said simply and he was so sincere, so genuine and earnest that Mrs. Hopewell would not for the world have smiled.

Flannery O'Connor, "Good Country People"

Disciple; God's student - that's Pointer here.
No smile is granted; Matthew's verse is strong,
but not for Mistress Hopewell. That is clear.
A Christian; she's devout, but strung along.

"Who finds his life shall lose it;" hold this dear,
"but he that loses life for Christ," no wrong,
"his life, it will be found." So Matthew's cheer
proclaims. This Manley Pointer says so strong.
