(In the spirit, I saw He was also talking about how we judge others – that we judge others far more harshly than we judge ourselves).

If you desire mercy, show My Mercy to others.

10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
Proverbs 21:21 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
Matthew 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
