How often are we
like that Pharisee
who thank God
for all we are
and see others
for what they are not
and remain unclean?

I wish it were easier
to be both humble and holy.
But, when the choice is
one or the other,
Jesus says it's better if we

Are like that tax collector
standing before God
without pride
aware only of our need
with sin so easy to see
but none the less
heading home
justified
completely.

-Veronica Boulden
