Judge Ye Not
Judge not thy brother’s failings, nor ever be the one
To hurl a stone at anything that he has ever done.
Scorn not his humble efforts, nor cast him to the ground,
He may have just discovered what thou has never found.
Be not so self-righteous; thy foot can also fall …
No man who lives is blameless, for sin has touched us all.
And God alone must judge us; no man has been assigned.
Because the Lord alone can see within your heart … and mine.
Grace E. Easley
