day 104

So he said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves in the sight of others; but God knows your hearts;"  Luke 16:15

when we drop
off groceries at
the pantry, but don't
   speak to those waiting
   at the door;
when we serve
at the shelter, but
   know none of
   the guests by name;
when we sing songs
for the residents
at the retirees' home,
   but don't bother
   to listen to their
                 lives, we
have simply stuck
   in our thumb
and pulled out
   aplomb,
saying, 'what good
people we are!'
