All of us somehow pass judgments on others, whether verbalized or simply in our minds. We are fond of comparing people with ourselves and with others.
     In the Gospel reading Jesus tells us not to make judgments on others; and, if we do, to be ready to be judged in the same measure we judge others.
     As a matter of right only God may judge other people. In God's greatness and goodness, he forgives rather than judges.
In the Gospel story about the woman caught in adultery, the Jewish leaders wanted to see what Jesus would do.  Rather than judge and punish her, Jesus wisely says, "Let anyone among you who has no sin be the first to throw a stone at her." One by one the accusers went away, starting with the elders. (Jn 8:1- 11)
     It takes personal good will, effort and prayer to avoid making hasty  judgments on others.  Let us look  at the example of Jesus who  inspires  us with  his wisdom and mercy, who shows love and kindness to all.
