10 POINTS FOR FREEMASONS TO REMEMBER
Source: Masonic Vibes
- I am the representative of my Lodge and of all Free and Accepted Masons. Whatever I do or say reflects directly upon myself and my fellow Freemasons everywhere and our good works.
- I am responsible for what my Lodge and Freemasonry represent. They can be no more than what my fellow Freemasons and I make them.
- I should not criticize what my fellow Freemasons do for Freemasonry unless I have a better suggestion and I am prepared to do it myself.
- I must remember that the fact that I bear the name, Master Mason or Freemason, is not enough. I must continue to be worthy.
- My fellow members and I are our Lodges and Freemasonry. Without our active support they cease to exist.
- My Lodge does me a favour by calling upon me. I am not doing the Lodge a favour by serving. It is both an obligation and a privilege to help the Lodge and Freemasonry.
- I should treat my fellow Freemasons with the same respect, honour, and understanding that I would like to receive from them.
- It is not a right to be a Freemason, it is an honour. I should respect that honour by abiding by all of the precepts of my Lodge, my Grand Lodge, and Freemasonry as a whole.
- Whatever differences my fellow Freemasons and I may have, we are all bound together by the bonds of our loyalty to The GAOTU, our families, the Lodge, and Freemasonry.
- The willing Master Mason and his understanding family are the lifeblood of the Lodge and Freemasonry.
