Jesus’ Call

Caravaggio - The Calling of St Matthew   Jesus’ Call

Levi sat
at his desk
with his books
and money.
Jesus said,
“Follow me—
you are my
disciple.”
Levi rose,
left his things
and followed:

made a feast,
brought in friends;
served his Lord.
Pharisees
objected.
Jesus said,
“I have come
not for those
who are well—
I have come
for sinners.”
