John 8:7 “…If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” (NIV)*

mirror, mirror tell me

may i this stone cast?

does my reflection sparkle fair,

free of tainted past?

…..

or do i resemble her,

needing mercy for my sin–

from you, oh fairest one,

who chooses never to condemn.

John 8:11 “‘No one, sir,’ she said. ‘Then, neither do I condemn you,’ Jesus declared. ‘Go now and leave your life of sin.'” (NIV)*
