Drop Your Stone

This week my pastor eulogized the great football player Steve McNair. His death was a shock and a big news story. Everyone has their opinions and assumptions about what happened. People have speculated this, and speculated that, but the only people who know is Steve, the girl, and God. But that is not what I am here to talk about...

One of the main points my pastor tried to get across is that we all fall short. We all have issues, struggles, sins, and downfalls we deal with on a daily basis. We are in no position to judge anyone for their actions. We have to learn from the mistakes of others and move on.

John 8:7

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

My pastor stated that we need to learn from the sum total of Steve's life...the good and the bad. I think this is a great message. We all have issues and have all made mistakes, but we have to take the good and the bad and learn from them. People are not perfect and we cannot expect them to be. We can't judge others for their shortcomings because you wouldn't want people to do that to you.
Wrote all this to say. When you see some one fall short, when you see some one who has sinned, remember to drop your stone.
