the pulley tells the tale about how God made man. It tells us that God poured all his blessing on man when he made him which includes wisdom, honor, beauty, pleasure and strength. God did not gave everything to man, infact he kept the ‘rest’ at the bottom. God knew that if he gave everything to man the instead of praising God, man would start praising God’s gifts. Pulley is a mechanical device used for lifting heavy loads. In this poem herbert connected the lifting of pulley to man by saying that God lifted few of his blessings from man and didn’t blessed him with everything.

  1. You've raise a good point. If home men could have power over everything in this universe they would never deem it necessary to pray, obey and search for his presence. however, God is the supreme being. He knows our strenght as well as our weakness. he knows we will search his presence when we're in danger. afterall, it shouldn't be this way. we should search his presence in god time also.

  2. When I originally commented I seem to have
    clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are
    added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I get 4 emails
    with the same comment. Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me from that service?
