AM I A MASTER MASON?
Many times the question comes to the forefront: "Am I a Master Mason?"
The fact that perfection on earth has never yet been attained may offer some degree of satisfaction, but we who ask the question are not thinking in terms of perfection! Rather we are thinking in terms of those things which we could do which would make us better Masons.
We think in terms of a personal happiness that would naturally derive from living more the principles that make of a Mason a Master.
Then follow other questions:
Do I speak of a standard of morality for others which I do not make an effort to attain for myself?
Do I presume to question the motives of others and to establish a pattern for them which is my own, but perhaps less desirable than the one they live by?
Do I look for little, unimportant things to criticize, and enlarge upon these, overlooking my own greater faults?
Do I look for the good that I know is in my brother, or only for the things that are his special weaknesses, while I dismiss my own faults as mere trifles?
Since man cannot reach higher than his aim, what is my aim?
Is it greater love or greater envy? Is it unselfish service or personal gain?
Is it courage to defend the principles of Freedom, Justice and Tolerance, or the cowardice of silence?
How great is the disparity between what I stand for and what I am willing to fight for?
How can I become more deserving of the title- "Master Mason?"
