Blind Guides

 

Blind Guides
By Marie C Neubauer
~

They did their good deeds
For to be seen of men,
But faith, justice and mercy
Were lacking in them.

These attributes of God
They did not possess,
For within they were full
Of extortion and excess.

Outwardly appearing righteous
For other men to see,
But Jesus saw their hearts,
Full of pride and hypocrisy.

Blind guides, He called them,
Their piety was just an act,
They’d swallow a camel
Yet strained at a gnat!

~

‘Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat and swallow a camel.’
[Matthew 23:24]
~

‘Woe unto you scribes and pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithes of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy and faith; these ought you to have done, and not have left the others undone.’
[Matthew 23:23]
