Throwing Stones in Glass Houses

Standing in judgment
condemning others
when they stand in glass houses
shards all around

Throwing stones in glass houses
letting them fly
not remembering the teachings of Jesus
on casting the first stone

Too quick to judge,
hiding their hypocrisy
behind family values
when they have none of their own

Better to be humble
to focus within
to turn from the world
and reject our own sin

John 8:1-11
Woman caught in adultery
John 8:7
You who are without sin cast the first stone
Luke 18:9-14
Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector
Matthew 7:1-5
Judging others
story on Rachel Maddow show
May 17, 2011
on right-wing politicians
railing on the subject of family values
and yet proving they too have
feet made of clay
