Jesus & the art of being non-judgemental

One of my favourite stories about the love of Jesus in the Bible is the following incident. What a mighty lesson on the art of being non-judgemental.

“Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.

So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”

11 She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

Amazing grace has rescued me
You paid the price, You set me free
I will sing Your praises forever
My Savior and King

~ From  Mi Corazon by Don Moen 

If I was a rainbow I’d show my colors for You
And if I was a songbird I’d sing my song for You
And if You take the sun and the moon
Take away the stars at night
Your faithful Word will always be my light…
