Wisdom Is Vindicated
You, who sit in derision and judgment,
never take your eyes off others!
Drunkards are your meat,
tax-gathers your dessert!
Your hunger is never satisfied,
your thirst never quenched!
With each pointing of your finger,
floods of self-righteousness fill your souls.
John the Baptist preached repentance,
of this you saw no need.
Yet the Son of Man came eating and drinking,
gathering the sinners in!
God’s love shined forth as a beacon,
yet never seen by your blind eyes.
God’s wisdom is vindicated,
with children of righteousness-born again ones.

Luke 7:31–35 ESV “To what then shall I compare the people of this generation, and what are they like? (32) They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, “ ‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not weep.’ (33) For John the Baptist has come eating no bread and drinking no wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ (34) The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look at him! A glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ (35) Yet wisdom is justified by all her children.”
