Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?

Plea For Tolerance

If we but knew what forces helped mold
The lives of others from their earliest years -
Knew something of their background, joys and tears,

And whether or not their youth was drear and cold,
Or if some dark belief had taken hold
And kept them shackled, torn with doubts and fears
So long it crushed the force that perservers
And made their hearts grow prematurely old, 

Then we might judge with wiser, kindlier sight
And learn to put aside our pride and scorn...
Perhaps no one can ever quite undo
His faults or wholly banish some past blight -
The tolerant mind is purified, reborn,
And lifted upward to a saner view.

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; 
knock and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; 
and to him who knocks the door will be opened."

What Was His Creed?

What was his creed?
I do not know his creed, I only know
That here below, he walked the common road
And lifted many a load, lightened the task,
Brightened the day for others toiling on a weary way:
This, his only meed; I do not know his creed.

His creed? I care not what his creed;
Enough that never yielded he to greed,
But served a brother in his daily need;
Plucked many a thorn and planted many a flower;
Glorified the service of each hour;
Had faith in God, himself, and fellow-men;
Perchance he never thought in terms of creed,
I only know he lived a life, in deed!
