Judge Not

I felt hurt and discouraged,
For 'though I was doing my very best;
Some Christian friends were judging me,
Which brought to my soul, unrest.

I turned to God's word for comfort
And saw written with clarity;
"Judge not, that ye be not judged."
So they were wrong in judging me!

How could they be so blind? I thought;
It was there so plain to see;
"The judgement you meet to others, the same,
Shall be meted unto thee"'.

I praised God that I was so different;
At least I used my eyes;
It was only fair they should pay the price
For daring to criticise!

When the Holy Spirit spoke to me,
No longer could I condemn;
'Whilst I continued with this attitude,
I was also judging them!
