Reflect on Scripture

Michael Lichty

Read and reflect on John 8:1–11. The religious leaders were prepared to convict a woman caught in adultery and to carry out her death sentence. Jesus’ response—“Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her”—left the woman without any accusers. Then Jesus added, “Neither do I condemn you.”

The story illustrates God’s great mercy. No matter how badly or how often we mess up, we never fall out of God’s grace. God is always waiting to welcome us, to forgive us, and to give us strength to try again.
