Sunday citation

This is a great quote that I found in connection with 1 Samuel 16:7:

"It is not possible to judge another fairly unless you know his desires, his faith, and his goals. Because of a different environment, unequal opportunity, and many other things, people are not in the same position. One may start at the top and another at the bottom, and they may meet as they are going in opposite directions. ... How can we, with all our weaknesses and frailties dare to arrogate ourselves the position of a judge? At best, man can only judge what he sees; he cannot judge the heart or the intention, or begin to judge the potential of his neighbor." (N. Eldon Tanner, "Judge not that ye be not judged," Ensign, July 1972, p. 35.)
