One could…

160616while Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. Early in the morning he came again to the temple. All the people came to him and he sat down and began to teach them. The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery; and making her stand before all of them, they said to him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery. Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They said this to test him, so that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” And once again he bent down and wrote on the ground. When they heard it, they went away, one by one, beginning with the elders; and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus straightened up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, sir.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go your way, and from now on do not sin again.”] (John 8:1-11, NRSV)

Let anyone among you who is without sin cast the first stone. So one of them had to say they were without sin, and throw a stone, then everyone else could join in. But none of them could say they were without sin. But there was one, who was without sin, who could have cast a stone. But He did not.

Jesus could have thrown a stone at her, but He saw where she was and loved her, forgave her of her past and told her to live into the future that He had prepared for her.

This is where Jesus meets you. Able to cast a stone at you, but loving you too much to judge, but forgives your past and offers you a life beyond your wildest imagination. So turn to Him!
