Cast Your Care, Not Stones
Listen, everyone has issues and there are always two sides to every story. We should always want to hear both sides before we make a decision or judgment about others.
The adulterous woman:
Jesus said, when the religious folks were trying to trap him concerning an adulterous woman, “He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone.” No one threw any, nor should we. If we see a brother or sister fall or make a mistake, we should be there to help and encourage them, never to throw rocks at them, never to condemn them or act as if we have never done anything wrong.
And before you answer a matter, make sure you have heard both sides. Too often Christians throw rocks at other believers who may have come up short in some area of their lives. Aren’t we supposed to restore those who have sinned, come up short, made a mistake, done something wrong?
The devil is the condemner of people, not we. We are to restore those, help them, encourage them, get them to repent, so they can walk with God.
So, let us choose to be more like God and less like the devil when it comes to our brothers and sisters who come up short from time to time in their lives.
Just a thought,
