COMPASSION CURES CONDEMNATION (John 8:1-11) ShareWhen have you felt alone and insignificant? Perhaps you’ve faced condemnation. We have all treated others the same way. Yes, none of us can cast the first stone. Did anyone show you compassion? John 8:1-11 shows us a good example of how to treat someone who is, as Jesus says elsewhere in scripture (Matt. 25) “the least of these.” The recipient of Christ’s compassion in this story was considered to be unworthy of life itself. She was first of all a woman, which in her society meant she was inferior to men. She was a sinner and deserved punishment. She was one single person facing a condemning crowd alone. How much more of a “least” one could anyone be? This Good News Reflection comes from one of our daily Good News Reflections. To receive them free by email, sign up at gogoodnews.net/DailyReflections.
