John 8:7-9
"And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, 'Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.' And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him." ESV
Had we been there, would any of us have been able to throw a stone at the woman? How many stones do we throw each day without even giving it a thought that we are not flawless and in reality, should have stones thrown at us. Jesus was the only one that was without sin and he could have stoned this woman. His love and mercy overshadowed the law. He had proven His point. She knew she was guilty and was at Jesus' mercy to save her life. He did. If we find that we have a stone in our hands to throw at someone, let's remember our own sin, drop the stone, and walk away.
Heavenly Father, how thankful we are for Your great mercy to us. We deserve death, but by the blood of Jesus Christ, the punishment for our sins has been accomplished. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit and when we feel justified in throwing a stone at someone, put that nudge within us to remember that we deserve it too. We humbly pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
