No Stones to Throw


Sometimes I get angry when I think people are being fake.  When I see Christian posts all over their facebook pages, but not in their lives.  And sometimes by the posts I think they are saying "I'm holier than you", and I want to say "I know what you're really like."   And then this small voice says "Hey!  You're angry because you think someone is judging you, right?  So how can you do the same thing to them?  You don't know what is in his or her heart!  Only God has that inside track.  So get off your high horse and go spread some love."


7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

...


Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.







Jesus, Friend of Sinners by Casting Crowns

Jesus, friend of sinners

We have strayed so far away
We cut down people in your name
But the sword was never ours to swing

Jesus, friend of sinners
The truth's become so hard to see
The world is on their way to You
But they're tripping over me

Always looking around but never looking up
I'm so double minded
A plank eyed saint with dirty hands
And a heart divided

Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
Open our eyes to world
At the end of our pointing fingers
Let our hearts be led by mercy

Help us reach with open hearts
And open doors
Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
Break our hearts for what breaks Yours, yeah

Jesus, friend of sinners
The one who's writing in the sand
Make the righteous turn away
And the stones fall from their hands

Help us to remember
We are all the least of thieves
Let the memory of Your mercy
Bring Your people to their knees

No one knows what we're for only against
When we judge the wounded
What if we put down our signs crossed
Over the lines and loved like You did

Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
Open our eyes to world
At the end of our pointing fingers
Let our hearts be led by mercy

Help us reach with open hearts
And open doors
Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
Break our hearts for what breaks Yours

You love every lost
'Cause you reach for the outcast
For the leper and the lame
They're the reason that You came

Lord, I was that lost
'Cause and I was the outcast
But you died for sinners just like me
A grateful leper at Your feet

'Cause You are good, You are good
And Your love endures forever
You are good, You are good
And Your love endures forever

You are good, You are good
And Your love endures forever
You are good, You are good
And Your love endures forever

Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
Open our eyes to world
At the end of our pointing fingers
Let our hearts be led by mercy

Help us reach with open hearts
And open doors
Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
Break our hearts for what breaks Yours

And I was the lost
'Cause and I was the outcast, yeah
You died for sinners just like me
A grateful leper at Your feet
