Matthew 7, vs. 1 and 2 (Amplified Bible)

Do not judge and criticize and condemn others, so that you may not be judged and criticized and condemned yourselves.  For just as you judge and criticize and condemn others, you will be judged and criticized and condemned, and in accordance with the measure you (use to) deal out to others, it will be dealt out again to you.

Reading this should create in us the desire to call upon grace in every relationship and situation.  When I think of the times I have been quick to criticize someone or judge their actions, I would not want to be treated that way, or judged by that measure.

Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. (Colossians 4:6)
