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. (John 8:7-8 NKJV)
I’ve heard many times people excuse their condemnation of people in obvious sin because they’re caught “red handed” like this woman was. This verse says so much about even those who have been caught in their sins. We don’t need to cast stones because we all have sinned. He doesn’t even pay it much attention but just goes about writing and doing what God has called Him to do. Paying no mind to the sins this woman committed but keeping His focus on what He was sent to do.
Lord help me to be like Christ and to keep my focus on you rather than the sins of others so that I may walk in the light. In Jesus’ name, amen.

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?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” (John 8:7-8, 10-12 NKJV)
