REMEMBER YOU’RE A MASON
By an Unknown Brother

When the pressures of recession
Make us concentrate on greed,
Take heed, a worthy Mason
Cares about another’s needs;

Don’t let pressures of the moment
Make your obligation sway,
Stop and help a fallen brother
Or another by the way;

What you give is like a bubble
Whenever you assist,
What it costs in time and trouble
Is, soon after, never missed;

Brother, bear that obligation
You accepted on your knee,
It’s in direct relation
To your own security;

Never hesitate, my brother
Square your actions now and say,
“I’ll remember I’m a Mason,
And behave like that today;”

“With regard to human kindness
And the ‘Golden Rule’, I pray,
I’ll remember I’m a Mason…
And behave like that today.”

Words to live by: “To keep the Golden Rule we must put ourselves in other people’s places, but to do that consists in and depends upon picturing ourselves in their places.” Harry Emerson Fosdick
