Sins in the Sand

We are taught not to judge but how far does that go?
Yes, we're all taught to love but how much of it shows?

We like to throw stones at the devil's scapegoats
Yet the ears that will listen are hearing this quote:

"Judge not lest ye be judged", and isn't it true?
Or are some people so bad that our judgment is due?

Did you think that salvation was exclusive to you?
If you light fires of judgment won't you be consumed?

I can't speak for you but I don't want to judge people
After all, under God we are all loved as equals

When I join the accuser and his self-righteous band
Somehow I can see my own sins in the sand

We cannot judge the heart of another - we have not walked in his shoes. But we must be alert to bad behavior - especially our own. Thank you for this insightful poem, and congratulations!

this is very powerful, meaningful creation!!!! i have added to my fav list this. each line is so well deserved in its creation.... "that our judgement is due" what a sharp question to cut our self ego! this is best question i loved a lot "won't you be consumed" "God we are all loved as equals" perfect realization. beautiful ending "my own sins in the sand" many congrats for the POTD Kyle kriticos for this beautiful creation!!! Cheers!!!

You have taken a serious subject, and made it so clear, concise, accurate, and you have taken a risk that few have taken. But hopefully more will. You have said it all Kyle, the way only you could have said it. This was God-inspired, and it shows.
