did condemnation ever get to become such a standard part
of human nature? Why is it so easy for us to stand
in judgment of other people when we make so many mistakes
ourselves? How can we spend so much time and effort
condemning others when that time and effort would be so
much more useful spent improving ourselves and our own
natures--becoming more loving and compassionate as we do
simply can't see into another person's heart or soul, and
we simply cannot know how God is appearing to that person
or what trials that person has to go through to learn what
he or she needs to learn in this life. So what
purpose does our condemnation serve, except perhaps to
feed our egos by making us feel superior to others?

treat others with unconditional love and compassion.
And while we may find it necessary to react negatively to
someone's actions, that isn't necessarily a condemnation
of the person him or herself--and only when we're able to
recognize and act from that distinction will we be able to
treat others with unconditional love.
of us, of course, is free from making our own mistakes; it
only stands to reason that we shouldn't hold others in
strict judgment for theirs. Showing love and
compassion is just as beneficial to us as it is to them.
