Day 203, August 1

Yesterday I wrote about letting go of the sins and pains of the past.  Of course, the story of Christ and the adulteress comes to mind.  You remember the story:  a woman was accused of adultery; cruel critics dragged her to the public square, with the intent to stone her to death.

Christ posed His oft-repeated challenge:  let him who is without sin cast the first stone.

The Savior didn't condone the sin, but He did love the sinner.  He showed mercy to her, a mercy that continues to challenge me to show to myself and to others.

Joy for today:  basking in Christ's mercy and maybe even finding it for myself.
