A Spiritual Battle

"Psst, did you hear about...."
"Hey, did you see what ________ did?!"
etc., etc., etc....


"O teach me not to judge, oh Lord,
from rumors I have heard.
Show me not to be critical
from someone else's word.
Help me not base my love for someone
on somebody's mood;
cause me to have, Lord, constantly,
Thy perfect attitude.
Help me to see them through THINE eyes
and no one else's, Lord.
Let all temptations that I have
to judge them be ignored!
Let nothing that would cause them more pain
pass across these lips!
Instead, let caring and concern
come in our fellowships!
There is enough pain being caused
by what is going on.
Oh Lord, let Christian caring, on
this situation, dawn.
And Lord, cause those who are involved
to fall upon their faces
and so implore, from Thee, oh Lord,
Thy wisdom and Thy graces!"

"Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so unto them."   Matthew 7:12a
