Only God can judge me

I once heard a rumor about a girl.
It was a video of her going around school. She was talked about for this video. My heart ached for her as I did not know her, nor her name, only heard the terrible, gut wrenching, rude, horrific gossip told of her. This reminds me of the woman caught in adultery. I did not know this girl, as much as I did not know the Woman caught in adultery, but what I do know is that Jesus loves them both, and will forgive them both. In fact He forgave the woman after asking the men who wanted to persecute and stone her “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

I love Jesus. I too have judged, I too have been judged. We have all been this woman, judged. The next time we hear gossip, a rumor, or a lie, let us pray for the one saying it and the one being spoken about. Let’s not also sin by gossiping, but do as Jesus does as love the one who is being talked about and the one doing the talking. I often think about this girl, I do not know her name, however I pray for her and that all her pain heal in Jesus name. Amen.

Let us learn from our mistakes, and remember not to judge others – but to love them, even in adultery, even in sin.

God bless.

1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 “No one, sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
John 8:1‭-‬11 NIV
