“But if you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless.

– Matthew 12:7

We can be so focused on our religious efforts and sacrificial service that we miss the heart of God in our judgments. How often have we self-righteously condemned and judged others who were, quite frankly more righteous than we? More often than I think we’d like to admit.
