Inspirational plaque: 'If you spend all your time judging people, that leaves less time for you to love them'.

Condemning Condemnation

Don't point your finger at me,
Condemning me with pride --
Don't sit in judgment of my heart
If you can't see inside.

When Christ was faced with sinners
Did He label them lost?
Or did He warn them of their sin,
Adding, "Now, count the cost."

Don't tell me I'm not worthy
To walk the Christian path,
Don't label me a heathen
Or scowl at me with wrath.

For God alone is my Judge
And He looks on the heart,
He knows if I'm a Christian
Or just playing the part.

And on that day when I stand
Before God on His Throne,
He won't judge me for my past sins
But on my "works" alone.

Christ PAID for all my sinning
When He died on that tree ~
So if you want someone to judge,
Sinner, don't start with ME!
