Just GO!

Beth’s post about the woman caught in adultery is amazing. 

I’ve always wondered about that passage in John 8. What was her name? Was that left out on purpose to not bring her further condemnation? Or was it so we could put OUR names in her place – so that we may relate to her failure? What did Jesus write in the dirt? What happened to the man? Clearly gender bias is at work here and the feminist part of me wants to scream. 

What stands out to me most today is the word “go”. Often I get stuck in a cycle of bad thinking, where I dwell on a rejection or failure. But we were never meant to build our lives in such a place. We were meant to GO. 

Just go. God has forgiven it. Stop living in it.
