God invites us to choose grace rather than self-condemnation or anything else — as a starting point for growth and change.
Read the Gospel story in John 8:1-11.
What does Jesus say to the women?
Does he extend commandments or does he extend grace and then invites the women to build a whole new life on that foundation. She doesn’t change in order to receive Jesus’ approval, she changes as a response to His love. Take a moment to think about the change you want to experience, especially in connection with your raw emotions and reactions.
What intrigues you, or concerns you about approaching these changes as a response to God’s love.
Tomorrow we’ll spend time talking about setting goals and remember our goal should not be perfect, that’s not realistic. Our goal is to make progress – imperfect progress.
