Reading through the Gospels I have been struck at how much Jesus Valued people. In almost every account of Jesus encountering someone, we see how he takes special care to value each person. He could have used his religious piety to shun them or to condemn them, but Jesus believed the best in them.

One of these stories is found in John 8, where there was a woman caught in adultery. Jesus restrained himself from passing the same judgement that the pharisees offered her. Instead he offers her grace, yet still corrects her life choices. Jesus knew just how to treat people - a fair mixture of love and correction.

“Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Women, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” …. “Then neither do I condemn you?” – John 8:11

Remember today that Jesus values all people, but especially YOU.

Living in Grace
