Tú te tomas rápidamente una foto con él o ella y te despides, sin saber qué pensaba aquel personaje. Más tarde analizas la situación y concluyes que te hubiera gustado conocerle un poco mejor. No obstante, ¿cómo hubieras podido hacerlo si no le dejaste pronunciar ni una sola palabra?

Al igual que los dinosaurios, esta clase de hombres parece ser historia para nosotros como cristianos. No obstante, las Escrituras afirman: «A Abraham se le tomó en cuenta la fe como justicia […] Por tanto, Abraham es padre de todos los que creen» (Romanos 4:9, 11).

Al taller del Maestro vengo, pues él me curará, me tomará entre sus brazos y cada herida sanará. Las herramientas del Maestro mi alma remendarán, martillo en mano y mucho fuego, aunque me duela ayudará a conocer y a entenderlo, a saber que nada merezco. Amarte es más que un pretexto, es una entrega, es un negar; más que aquel sentimiento, es la decisión de amar. Al taller del Maestro vengo, allí el sol se pondrá. Al taller del Maestro vengo, carpintero mi alma aquí está. Al taller del Maestro vengo, no importa el tiempo que allí he de estar.
