BE SLOW TO JUDGE

***

Eagle gives advice

Living ones, be slow to judge

God is the true judge

***

NOTE: We should be slow to judge, or perhaps it is best if we don’t try to decide specifically who should go to Heaven and who should go to Hell. We don’t have the whole picture; God does. Someone may be very disagreeable, but perhaps that person, unknown to us, suffers constant pain.
