5 Sunday of Lent ‘c’
I am sure we all have done bad things in the past, shameful things, things that we are not proud of today. Those in the gospel reading that accused that woman of adultery also had done bad things. We know this because no one reached for a stone to punish and kill that woman. “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” I am learning today that we people like to condemn and judge others for their sins, but forget that God never condemns us for our sins. We all have sins, and whenever we ask Jesus to forgive us, he tells just like to that woman: “Neither do I condemn you. Go, and from now on do not sin anymore.” We should stop crying over our past, because the past has been forgiven; rather we should try not to make the same mistakes anymore.
