Today's reading

Permalink
Today's reading, John 8:1-11, is one of the most applicable to today's world, I think. Jesus gives us the stricture that only someone without sin should judge sinners. The woman caught in adultery is accused by many, but none will admit to being sinless and all leave her alone with Jesus:

"Has no one condemned you . . .? Then neither do I."

I think of "road rage" an example of judging others; I see someone else on the road who has done something inappropriate while driving and I judge them immediately; I have to work hard to remember that I too might have been guilty of such a manoeuvre not to long before, and calm down. Jesus does not condemn them and nor should I.
