Cast the First Stone?

There’s a heck of a lot of opinion-spouting going on about injustice, and how bad certain groups of people are: blacks, whites, law-enforcement, politicians, democrats, republicans, etc., etc.

It just adds more unproductive noise to an already inhospitable world unless we…

  • refrain from over-generalization (there are good people in all groups!)
  • refuse to judge before we invest a little in mercy
  • seek to understand before we seek to be understood
  • remember that we, ourselves, are not blameless

Even though throwing stones takes the focus off my own failures for awhile and puts me in the lofty seat of judge and jury, the next time I am tempted to join in, I think I’ll take my stones and build something instead.
