Pastor Tiffany Hollums decided that each day during Lent, she would choose a word to prayerfully reflect upon. A volunteer suggested reading the lectionary texts and then choosing a word that stood out to her from those passages. Tiffany is sharing her Lenten reflections here and hopes to inspire our readers to join in her journey.
This word stuck out to me vividly in the John 8 passage for today: ANYONE.,
Jesus said ““Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”
It is so easy to pick up the stone to throw at others while ignoring the absolute boulders in your own life. Why do we forget the grace we’ve been shown and become so ungracious to those around us? This is a question we would do well to visit over and over because Lord knows, we all have so much we need to learn and do to be like Christ.
