Today's readings are at: http://www.usccb.org/nab/030110.shtml

Today's "reflection guy" on the USCCB web site talked about being brought up with the image of God being a harsh and militant judge; a lawyer going around trying to catch us messing up so's he can whip up on us.  Then in today's gospel we see God as merciful, and Jesus calls us to be merciful as well.

One line that strikes me in the Gospel reading is, "Stop condemning and you will not be condemned."

I hear it about judging, forgiveness, etc. but haven't thought about this aspect very much.  What better promise has God than this: that we will not be condemned?

... love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
