Judge Kindly. . .

Rough Ashlar becoming smooth
From Waller Masonic Lodge 808 Online Newsletter March 2015

Don't expect perfection in a man because he is a Freemason. If you do, you will be disappointed.

Masonry makes a man better, but no human agency can make him perfect.

If he is a Mason, you have a right to presume he is a good man, but do not condemn Masonry even if a few Masons turn out bad. Even the Great Teacher Himself had a Judas.

The aim and purpose of Masonry is to receive none but good men, keep them good and make them better. Judge the institution not by a few failures, but by the average of its successes.

That average is high and it consequently gives standing to its members, but it cannot be an infallible guide.
