“You cannot judge any man beyond your knowledge of him, and how small is your knowledge.”- Kahlil Gibran

Can I Judge You?

How can I judge you
when I don’t even know you?
How can I judge another
if I do not even know who I am?

All I have are clues
All I have are rumors
All I have are sketches
But sketches do not define who we are.

How I’d like to say things
based on what I see
based on what I believe to be true
but how little I see the truth!

I therefore withhold my judgment
and replace it with my many doubts,
I lift up my complaints to Him
who knows you as you really are.

I cast upon Him my heart’s burden
and all the things I cannot see
I believe in His love and In His Justice
And He will judge between you and me.

Don’t speak against one another, brothers. He who speaks against a brother and judges his brother, speaks against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law, but a judge. Only one is the lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge another? -James 4, WEBBE
