We are called by Jesus to show love, compassion, and mercy. We are not called to judge and condemn based on someone else’s inability to be like us; for better or worse. Matthew 12:7 says, If you had known what these words mean, “I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the innocent. Many people in the modern day church are no different than the Pharisees; they judge others on their inability to measure up to their own standard and forget the only standard that matters is Jesus. God provided grace through His mercy to all people equally because we all need equal amounts of grace. When we begin to compare ourselves to others and make it our measurement, we fail. God is our measurement and He is the only one who can provide the means to save us from eternal condemnation.
