  1. Judge Not
    Poet: Lillian E. Curtis


    However hard a person looks,
    Hard may have been his lot;
    'Tis not for you nor me to tell,
    So we will judge him not.

    He may be ragged and forlorn,
    Stern poverty may be his lot,
    And still he may be worthy,
    So we will judge him not.

    We may soon be neglected and alone,
    Hard may be our lot,
    Then we should like a smile,
    So we will judge him not.

    Let's go and speak a kindly word
    To cheer his weary lot,
    That will be by far the best,
    For God has said, "Judge not."




  2. Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others.The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. Matthew 7:1-2



  3. How Do We Know
    Poet: Unknown


    How do we know what hearts have vilest sin?
    How do we know?
    Many, like sepulchres, are foul within,
    Whose outward garb is spotless as the snow,
    And many may be pure we think not so.
    How near to God the souls of such have been,
    What mercy secret penitence may win
    How do we know?

    How can we tell who sinned more than we?
    How can we tell?
    We think our brother walked guiltily,
    Judging him in self-righteousness. Ah, well!
    Perhaps had we been driven through the hell
    Of his untold temptations, we might be
    Less upright in our daily walk than he
    How can we tell?

    Dare we condemn the ills that others do?
    Dare we condemn?
    Their strength is small, their trials not a few,
    The tide of wrong is difficult to stem.
    And if to us more clearly than to them
    Is given knowledge of the great and true,
    More do they need our help and pity too
    Dare we condemn?

    God help us all, and lead us day by day,
    God help us all!
    We cannot walk alone the perfect way.
    Evil allures us, tempts us, and we fall.
    We are but human, and our power is small;
    Not one of us may boast, and not a day
    Rolls o'er our heads but each hath need to say,
    God bless us all!




  4. Before you look for dirt in people, look for treasure. Matshona Dhliwayo



  5. As Pebbles In The Sea
    Poet: Unknown


    Who shall judge man from his manner,
    Who shall know him by his dress?
    Paupers may be fit for palaces,
    Princes fit for nothing else.
    Crumpled shirt and dirty jacket
    May beclothe the golden ore
    Of the deepest thoughts and feelings
    Satin vest can do no more.

    There are streams of crystal nectar
    Ever flowing out of stone;
    There are purple beds and golden
    Hidden, crushed, and overthrown;
    God, who counts by souls, not dresses,
    Loves and prospers you and me,
    While he values thrones the highest
    But as pebbles in the sea.

    Man upraised above his fellows
    Oft forgets his fellows then;
    Masters rulers lords, remember
    That your meanest kind are men!
    Men of labor, men of feeling,
    Men of thought and men of fame,
    Claiming equal rights to sunshine
    In a man's ennobling name.

    There are foam- embroidered oceans,
    There are little wood-clad rills;
    There are feeble inch-high saplings,
    There are cedars on the hills.
    God, who counts by souls, not stations,
    Loves and prospers you and me;
    For to him all vague distinctions
    Are as pebbles in the sea.

    Toiling hands alone are builders
    Of a nation's wealth and fame;
    Titled laziness is pensioned,
    Fed and fattened on the same;
    By the sweat of others' foreheads,
    Living only to rejoice,
    While the poor man's outraged freedom
    Vainly lifts its feeble voice.

    Truth and justice are eternal,
    Born with loveliness and light;
    Secret wrongs shall never prosper
    While there is a sunny right!
    God, whose world-wide voice is singing
    Boundless love to you and me,
    Sinks oppression, with its titles,
    But as pebbles in the sea.
