Throwing Stones

But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” John 8:7

Are you guilty of throwing stones? People thought they were going to outsmart Jesus and trap him into condemning a sinner to death. But what Jesus did was use this as a teaching moment for everyone. As Jesus said, whoever is without sin, go ahead and condemn the woman. But as we all know, we all are sinners and have fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)

Even though we are all sinners, we love to throw stones at other people. Why is this? Why can’t we look in the mirror and convict ourselves as easily? Jesus is teaching these people, stop worrying about other people’s sin, worry about your own sin. When we condemn other people, we condemn ourselves (Romans 2:1)

Jesus taught us judgment is not ours, do not judge or you will be judged (Matthew 7:1) This is a tough lesson to learn, we love to condemn and judge people. But the only one you are condemning is yourself. Jesus said “All power and authority on Earth and Heaven has been given to him ( 28:18)

So stop trying to play God, look in the mirror. Are you able to stand before The Lord with your actions and words? Don’t worry about things that are not yours to worry about, prepare yourself for the coming of The Lord in Jesus Name Amen
