Judge not the workings of his brain

And of his heart thou canst not see;

What looks to thy dim eyes a stain

In God's pure light may only be

A scar, brought from some well-won field,

Where thou would'st only faint and yield.

And judge none lost; but wait and see,

With hopeful pity, not disdain;

The depth of the abyss may be

The measure of the height of pain

And love and glory that may raise

The soul to God in after days!

Adelaide A. Procter.

 

I am more afraid of deserving criticism, than of receiving it. 

—William Gladstone.

 

Judge not, that ye be not judged. 

—Matthew 7.1.

 

Lord Jehovah, judge of all mankind, forbid that I should set myself as a judge of another's life, and neglect to live for the higher judgment of my own. May I not be absorbed in that which thrives in darkness, but live in the light of honesty and gentleness. Amen.
