4. The Baal Shem Tov teaches us – if we condemn another and we say – due to their sin something bad should happen to them – we are in fact judging ourselves – for even though we may have done that sin, nevertheless it could be that we do something similar – for example – it says “whoever is arrogant is as if he committed adultery – whoever is angry, as if he worshipped an Idol” and it could be that one’s own similar sin is even worse than the other person – however if a person decides to be foregoing and says for example “this person must have a very difficult time and he can’t control himself…” or similar excuses that one can find – then one in fact creates a merit for oneself – and this is what it says, that “from all my sins save me through the fact I’ve never condemn anyone.”
