Today I want to scream: put down that stone!!!!!!

There is a story in the Bible about a woman caught in adultery…. during that time the punishment was to stone her to death! So the (self) righteous men of the community came to Jesus and ask him what would he do?

I love Jesus’ response “Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

Our God is a God of grace and new beginnings, why is it so difficult for us to give the same grace to others?

I am watching a group of young people who are trying to make the right decisions and move forward with their lives. They serve the community, they are getting ready to go back to school, they go out of their way to do the right things … but so many people in their community still want to throw stones at them.

Maybe I should put a sign up that says “Let anyone how is without sin through the first stone.”
