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.
