Be Still and Know

When He was in the garden
sweating blood was I one drip on 
His brow or was I the cause?

the cause of all misery
when he was condemned or
was it just hate?

just hate undermining
all His works or 
was it His plan?

His plan to save us
Save us from ourselves
by taking the burden?

the burden of the fall
Adam had caused
lingers here now?

here now should we praise Him
by loving our neighbor
and not condemn

not condemn our neighbor 
or go against love
so be still and know …

    their is a difference of condemning a neighbour and giving prophecy of judgment as holy spirit delivers..I was unsure if you were confused about proper judgment. without judgement some are not saved..
