Six Sentence Story: Convert

I'm linking up again with Ivy for Six Sentence Stories.  This week's prompt:  convert.

It had been a horrible decision, and now she feared for her life. She had been caught in the very act, and her accusers brought her to Him--as much to condemn Him, as to condemn her.  

"He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."

And with that simple statement, the crowd dispersed, and she heard the healing words,"Neither do I condemn thee:go,and sin no more."

The rumors were true, but not only did He have power to heal physical infirmities, he had power to forgive sin!  Her heart light, she knew she would never be the same.

  6. This is a story applicable to our lives everyday. We shall not judge (not our job) but forgive others and ourselves. Great, Kristi.

  7. Beautiful! I have always loved this story. More people need to learn not to be judgmental! I know I"m guilty of it myself on occasions so thanks for the reminder.

    1. Not judging others is definitely a theme throughout the New Testament, so I think we all need to hear that message.
