Do Not Blame Another - Poem by Richard Merrell

Do not blame another
When you err and sin,
It's so easy to place your fault
Upon a 'her' or 'him.'

Do not blame another
For the flaws that you possess,
But speak the truth about yourself
And in honesty confess.

Do not blame another
When in weakness you defy,
The commandments of the Lord
But on God's Word rely.

Do not blame another
But speak things that are true,
Do not blame your brethren -
For another might blame you!

'My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue;
but in deed and in truth.'
