Sermon on the Mount --evaluating with grace and mercy

Humans are natural judges. Consciously or unconsciously, we are continuously evaluating our surroundings and determining good or bad, safe or dangerous, what we like and what we don't. When Christ says “Do not judge,” he is not telling us to stop evaluating, but rather to not be judgmental.

Just as the one who is judgmental is harshly judged by others, the one who evaluates the world with grace and mercy may receive grace and mercy.
