Stop Judging Others

From a summary of a recent talk by Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf (emphasis mine):

"We simply have to stop judging others and replace judgmental thoughts and feelings with a heart full of love for God and His children," said President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, second counselor in the First Presidency in his address Sunday morning.

"This topic of judging others could actually be taught in a two-word sermon," he said. "When it comes to hating, gossiping, ignoring, ridiculing, holding grudges or wanting to cause harm — please apply the following: Stop it!"

Who doesn't need this advice? It's potentially life-changing. I like to focus on the positive, but that "heart full of love" part seems almost impossible sometimes. I wondered, when I heard that: "What would my life be like if I could have a heart full of love?"
