Judge Not

"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye wete, it shall be measured to you again." Matthew 7:1-2

Here is s poem that a friend of mine wrote and I just wanted to share with others....

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven's door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp--
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.

Herb, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, 'What's the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How'd all these sinners get up here?
God must've made a mistake.'
And why's everyone so quiet,
So somber-give me a clue.''Hush, child,' He said, 'they're all in shock No one thought they'd be seeing you.

'JUDGE NOT.REMEMBER...JUST GOING TO CHURCH DOESN'T MAKE YOU A CHRISTIAN ANY MORE THAN STANDING IN YOUR GARAGE MAKES YOU A CAR.
