Get ready! Today’s blog brings you homework for 2016.
Do you remember the story of the woman caught in adultery that was brought before Jesus to be stoned?
I firmly believe there is just too much negativity, hatred, and dissing in our world, and we can change that. Corporately we can make a difference. One at a time we can accomplish it. Let’s stop pointing fingers at others and instead man up and look in the mirror at our own reflection.
What example are we leaving to others?
My challenge to each of you today is to go find a small stone for yourself. Then carry it around with you for 2016. Wherever you daily carry your spare change. In your pocket. In your purse. Somewhere you will be gently reminded of it each and every day. Those times you may quickly want to throw blame or judgment on others, pick up that stone. And think again. And let Jesus’ powerful words reverberate in your very soul, let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
Let’s stop the proverbial stoning of our fellow man. Let’s build him up rather than tear him down. Together let’s lay down our stones one by one and build beautiful stone bridges. Let’s bridge the gap.
I’ve got my stone. How about you?
7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him cast a stone at her first.”
Love and laughter,
