“Beware the Leaven of the Pharisees,” Ensign, July 1989, 46

Beware the Leaven of the Pharisees

Third Place

“Without body, parts, or passions,”

The wise beards sage—

Over-leavened wisdom,

Worldly weight the gauge.

Shunning holy manna

To gnaw at hollow bones,

Preaching graven imageless,

They feed their flock with stones.

While the child of humble heart

Who hungers through the night

Cries, “Feed me, O my Father!”

And he is fed on Light.
