The Kitchen Table Day 47
Today’s Reading: Psalm 128: Ezekiel 36:22-32; Jn 7:53-8:11
And I will give you a new heart and a new spirit I will put within you. Ezekiel 36:26
Those who hurl stones have a heart of stone. I don’t think it’s what anybody really wants, it can just happen when we experience bad days and bad decisions. A heart of stone can’t feel, and it can’t flex or function like it needs to. A heart of stone can’t pump life to the whole body. A heart of stone becomes consumed with its self-preservation and life then gets ugly. Did you ever think that maybe the woman caught in adultery had a heart of stone too? Maybe she stood there caught and condemned by a life of bad decisions and days that left her unable to feel and function with love. Maybe Jesus’ act of kindness softened her heart anew, gave here a new reason to live. He did tell her that He didn’t condemn her and to go and sin no more. That’s what God’s heart does, it feels for our needs and functions for our life. Praise God!
