Stop judging and you will not be judged.    Luke 6:37

The words of Jesus in the gospel today often meet protest. How can we NOT judge? We must make many judgments every day in order to survive!    While that might be true, the judgment Jesus is talking about here is not a positive force . Rather, he addresses the drive to feel superior over others and our relentless evaluations which may be incorrectly made and harshly communicated.
