Mercy.


Jesus said, "'Go and learn what this means, "I desire mercy not sacrifice." For I have come to call not the righteous but sinners.'"  Matthew 9:13 (NRSV)

What could this mean?

It means that God does not judge us.
He wants us to show mercy.
As He does.

And He does not judge sinners either.
He shows them mercy.

So no one is condemned.
