Judge not the Preacher for He is thy Judge

Judge not the preacher; for He is thy Judge:
If thou dislike him, thou conceiv'st him not.
God calleth preaching folly.  Do not grudge
To pick out treasures from an earthen pot.
The worst speak something good:  if all want sense,
God takes a text, and preacheth patience.

George Herbert 1593-1632
