Judge not, that you be not judged. (Matthew 7:1)

This is the flip side of the Jesus’ first great commandment which is Love Thy Neighbor as Thy Self. It is another look at the connectedness between Self and Other.So here’s the deal…God does not judge us, we judge ourselves after we have seen the truth. And when we see that truth the question becomes this: Does our sense of justice outweigh our compassion? If justice is dominant, then we are doomed which is far from God’s desire for us. Our best hope, perhaps our only hope, is to cultivate a strong sense of compassion.
