Condemned

What is in the heart of man

Only God can know

Judging Eye can never see

Or tell what lies below

For mind of man, self-rightly pure 

Is blocked by God’s decree

For what it sees or feign endures

Is but creative liberty

And what, pray tell, the state such mind

And heart that judges so?

But lost in dark confusion

And dancing toe to toe

With he that judges and condemns

The lost and loved of God

By cheating weights and measures

And sowing vile discord

What end of he that sits in seat

To God alone belongs

Condemnation’s his sure fate

For he himself condemned.

Matthew 7:1-2

Do not judge or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the same measure you use, it will be measured to you.

    Jesus died and rose again to take away our condemnation. I am forever grateful. Thanks for the reminder not to point a finger in judgment lest it point back at me. Blessings to you, Elizabeth…

    Well said, Carol Ann. No matter how righteous we may deem our judgements, they are still judgements we are levying against ourselves.
