Throwing stones

John 8:1-11 Mary Magdalene was surrounded by those who judged her for being a prostitute. They were planning on stoning her to death because of her sin. Jesus stepped in and stopped them by simply writing the stoners sins in the sand, simply saying,” those who are without sin cast the first stone. Not one was worthy of throwing that first stone, so all had walked away. Ecclesiastes 7:20 The Bible states that not one person is perfect, no, not one. Therefore not one of us can judge one another. The next time we point a finger at one another, we should remember this. We all have fallen short of God’s love and have no right to judge others. We have so much hate in this world, shouldn’t we be there to help rebuild? God, please help us not to judge today. Help us to love one another, inspire and encourage. Give us the strength to do better than the day before. In Jesus name amen.
