Judge Kindly

by Ed Halpaus
Grand Lodge Education Officer
Grand Lodge of A. F. & A. M. of Minnesota


Donít expect perfection in a man because he is a Mason. 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 the right to presume he is a fairly 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 success.

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