The fallen world masks God’s goodness. The mask is made up of injustice, futility and life’s hardships.
Jesus unveils the face of God!
What do we see behind the mask? The Father who provides graciously. The Father who provides without discrimination. The Father who provides goodness.
In the kingdom we reveal the face of God. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus gives us The Golden Rule to follow. When we live by The Golden Rule, we pull down the veil. We show the face of God to the world.

Since there are different kinds of judgement, is it possible for judgement to be compassionate?
Jesus warns us about condemning judgement and judgement that is lacking self- awareness.
However, Jesus values redemptive (compassionate) judgement.Compassionate judgement is restorative not condemning. Compassionate judgment is self-aware not blind. Compassionate judgement is genuine not hypocritical.
There are dangers of judgement in general. When you judge, you reveal your own culpability, you potentially reduce your faith to rules, and you risk destroying relationships.
In this podcast, Pastor Steve outlines the value in redemptive judgment as it helps others as well as you. It keeps you aware of your responsibilities, your imperfections, and your own need for redemption.
