THE ARM OF GOD
Two thousand years ago, the
religious authorities brought a woman to Jesus and told him that
she was caught in the act of adultery. The punishment for
adultery was death by stoning. They asked Jesus what they
should do. Jesus said, ďHe that is without sin, let him cast
the first stone.Ē Jesus was not condoning immorality. He was
simply making the point that no one is qualified to cast a stone
in self-righteousness at another person.
God is the judge of how each
person lives, and He is fully qualified and able to judge in a
fair manner without my help. I donít need to become a religious
policeman, judge, or jury. I need to love everyone who has
problems and leave the judgment up to God.
The judgment I pass on others
becomes the standard by which I am judged. If I get caught in
the trap of self-righteousness, I set a high bar over which I
will have to jump. My chance of being perfect is zero, and if I
am smart, I wonít criticize other people who are not perfect.
Whatever shortcomings others have, I will send them my love and
leave the judgment up to God. The day I become perfect will be
the day I have the right to become the arm of God and cast the
first stone. Until then, I will send them Godís love.
