"Huswifery" begins with a simple request, which is then spun out into an extended metaphor. The poet asks to be made God's spinning wheel. This is a humble, utilitarian object with a single purpose, which suggests that this is how the Puritans saw themselves—the one purpose of their lives was to serve and worship God. Any other use would be a misuse, like using a spinning wheel for something other than spinning. Everything about the poet—his affections, his soul, and his conversation—is to be used for this one purpose. A Puritan is therefore the very opposite of a Catholic or a Renaissance man, both of whom claim wide-ranging interests and abilities. Taylor is proud of his narrowness.
The only hint of luxury here comes with the beauty of the heavenly colors and the flowers of paradise. These, of course, are not produced by the spinning wheel but added from above. They are, however, to clothe every part of the poet's mind, words, and actions with glory. This is the paradox of Puritanism. The narrowness leads to God, and God is everything worth having. By becoming a humble instrument, like a spinning wheel, you subsume yourself into God and God's purpose—a grander enterprise than anyone unwilling to devote himself to God could comprehend. This is how the Puritan humility could turn so quickly to pride.
