Heart’s Desire

Our projecting what’s within
the heart of another soul,
reflects what’s hiding in our own
and reveals our inner goal,

Of deciding we know better
than The God Who knows us all,
that we know the other’s full intent
and we’re equipped to make the call.

For we must be very careful
to separate the two,
the person that they are
and all the things they do.

This act frees us to believe
the best about that soul,
and that choice can set us free
from our emotions’ fierce control.

So when working on a heart,
first, let us work upon our own,
then what we see in others’
won’t reflect a heart of stone.

“And why do you look at the speck that is in
your brother’s eye,but do not notice the log
that is in your own eye?”
Matthew 7:3
