Sunday Reflection by Susanne Timpani

10 Minute Daily Retreat - Read the Word of God with a prayerful heart.

Reading: John 8:1-11

10 Jesus straightened up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 She said, “No one, sir.”[b] And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go your way, and from now on do not sin again.”]

"How I wish that there was some wonderful place Called the Land of Beginning Again, Where all our mistakes and all out heartaches And all our poor selfish grief Could be dropped like a shabby old coat at the door, And never put on again."

'In Jesus, there is the gospel of the second chance. He was always intensely interested, not only in what a person had been, but also in what a person could be. 

He did not say that what they had done did not matter; broken laws and broken hearts always matter, but He was sure that every man has a future as well as the past.' Barclay

That is Good News.

Read the scripture slowly.
Reflect on its meaning for you. 
Listen to God's voice in the stillness. 
Pray for God's blessing upon you.
