Didn’t even one of them condemn you? He asked.
No, Lord, she answered; knowing full well that there was one man left that could.
The man in front of her; that had bowed his head when she was thrown down in front of him and did not look at her in her shame. The man that wrote in the dust and held no rock in his hand in the first place.
Neither do I, he said looking up; Go! And sin no more.
His eyes were full of forgiving, love and hope.
She could start over again now.
No rocks were thrown that day. No hope shattered.
And no silent prayer of forgiveness went unanswered.
We meet the same eyes, the same love, the same hope and forgiveness when we (although thrown down by or sins and wrong doings) dare to look for Jesus and ask for a new chance.
He is still answering those prayers with a heartfelt yes.
Blessings for the week ahead.
