Condemnation Walks Away

Written by , Posted in faith, life

It’s my honor to guest post today at The Handwritten, where Michael Perkins takes a few verses of scripture and distills them or reflects on them in short, handwritten pieces. It’s a thought-provoking and often soul-stirring project, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to contribute my own piece, Condemnation Walks Away.

I wrote it a few weeks ago when I was flipping through scripture to get to the part I wanted to study. As often happens, I landed instead where I really needed to be. Though I’d read it before, John 8:3-11 suddenly struck me deeply as I saw myself, and– better– Jesus, in a new way.

You can see my brief reflection (and handwriting!) here.

    Isn’t it incredible? Naturally, Jesus “got it” way better than everyone around him. He didn’t fuss, argue, worry…he wrote in the sand, and truth and mercy prevailed.
    Quiet.
    Awesome.

    Your hand-written note was succinct and true. I find myself on both sides of the line in the sand. That’s how much leeway we have between judging others and sinning.
