Why is it so easy to judge other people?
Describe the emotions you feel when someone else judges you.
John 8:3-11New Living Translation (NLT)3 As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd.
4 “Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery.5 The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?”
6 They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. 7 They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” 8 Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust.
9 When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman.10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”
11 “No, Lord,” she said.
And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”
When you hear about Jesus’ encounter with the woman caught in sin, what are some things you learn about Jesus?
Do you believe we’re all sinners? Why or why not?

Help us God to remember, each day is a new chance to show our love to you by showing love to all your children. Amen.
(Name), you are a child of God.
