... and so he told another story.

"Huh?" the people asked.
"WTF?" the people thought.

"Two people got online one day:
To post and repost many prayers,
On their Face Book walls and such;
To tweet and re-tweet many witnesses,
On their Twitter feeds and other such;
To theologize; to instruct; to be present.
One honored the ten Commandments;
While the other honored the Beatitudes."

"Huh?" the people asked.
"WTF?" the people thought.
"Is he talking about me?"

"One thanked God:
That he was white;
That he was hetero;
That he had plenty;
That he was 'better';
That his church was THE Church!"

"The other cried to God:
Because she was broken;
Because she was beat-up;
Because she was in need;
Because she felt unworthy;
Because other people stared at her!"

"Huh?" the people asked.
"WTF?" the people thought.
"Did he just insult me?"

"One justified himself; while,
The other one, God justified -
One sought to change others;
One sought to accept change.
Those who raise themselves,
Above others will fall down.
Those who're humble servants,
I will raise up and I'll glorify!"

"Huh?" the people asked.
"WTF?" the people thought.
