If you don’t know the background of this story- you should take the time to read it. Paraphrased the Pharisees again sought to catch Jesus. This time by bringing a woman who was committing adultery. In there culture that was punishable by stoning. They kept accusing her before Jesus, asking what should they do with her and to her. This is His response to their questions. HE who has no sin. That’s right those who are sinless, those who have never done anything wrong in their lives, they can throw the first stone. How does this relate to us? NO we do not stone people for adultery or even sin. But the principle remains - anyone WITHOUT any sin in their lives has the right to say things, and has the right to stand judgement. The truth be told NONE are clear, not one person can stand and past judgement or stones at anyone NO matter the sin. If you feel righteous, or you feel some kind of indignation stating it is coming from Christ. You are wrong. It is your pride. Christ laid his life on the Cross for sin and for sinners. He loved the unlovable. He did not turn his back on you or me, so tell me ,dear one, how can you righteously turn your back on someone you deemed has sinned. (Notice I said “ you deemed”) Let me give you warning Grace and forgiveness is something that has been given freely to us through Christ Jesus. BE very careful when you decided not to show grace and forgiveness to others. Remember these gifts are not ours to hold back! #dailyscriptureandthoughts #instablog

Dear Ones, it has been a while. Time sure flies and there never seems to be enough time in a day to do all the things you desire to do. Looks like I might have a bit more time on my hands this summer. So here I am.. Sharing the message of God with you... We are in 1 John chapter 3- John was encouraging his believing brothers and sisters in this verse that we are to manifest love for each other as brothers and sisters, most of all as children of God. I hate to use the example of earthly brothers and sisters because there are many blood related brothers and sisters who hate each other and do not show love to each other at all. So lets just say as children of God, we are to love each other. Too often in churches what we see is people who declare their love for you, but when you need them, they are NO WHERE to be found. Truly loving someone is not loving them just in words, but when it matters most. Through my life this has been a great experience.. People "say we really love you" but their actions speak otherwise. Isn't it sad.. That we use this word "love" so flippantly. Loving someone isn't a feeling you feel, love is an action. IT is something you do. To truly love someone is to show you care when it isn't convenient! Let us love each other as the Word encourages us to. Thank you for journeying with me. -Angie #dailyscriptureandthoughts
