"Brothers and sisters, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4:8)

"Thanks for the Gift: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

We must train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. We must keep our minds protected, because the devil could take advantage of those vulnerable ones.

"JUDGE GENTLY."



"JUDGE GENTLY."


Pray, don't find fault with the man that limps

Or stumbles along the road.

Unless you have worn the shoes he wears

Or struggled beneath his load.

There may be tacks in his shoes that hurt

Though hidden away from view.

Or the burden he bears placed on your back

Might cause you to stumble too.

Doesn't sneer at the man who's down today

Unless you have felt the blow

That caused his fall or felt the shame

That only the fallen know.

You may be strong but still the blows

That was his if dealt to you

In the selfsame way, at the selfsame time

Might cause you to stagger too.

Don't be too harsh with the man that sins

Or pelt him with word or stone

Unless you are sure -yea, doubly sure

That you have no sins of your own.

For you know, perhaps, if the tempter's voice

Should whisper as soft to you

As it did to him when he went astray

It might cause you to falter too.

I love this poem. It is a reflection of a song I wrote entitled "Through the Eyes of Jesus" - the lyrics talk about seeing others as God sees them - alot like your post teaches. Thanks for sharing:-)
