“Judge Not”

“Judge Not” – a Poem (author unknown)

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

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

Bob, whom 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 is 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 a church, mosque or synagogue does not make you a good Christian, Muslim or Jew – any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.

Every “Saint” has a PAST… and every “Sinner” has a FUTURE
