We should throw ourselves, not stones, towards others
When we cast judgement towards others, is it really about assessing them or is it more about making ourselves feel good? Do we really have to throw heavy stones towards others to feel lighter?
What is more difficult – more vulnerable – is to throw not stones, but ourselves, towards others. When we try to connect and relate, at the risk of our vulnerability, we open ourselves to suffering. But when we choose to pick up ourselves rather than stones of judgement, we better predispose ourselves to love and to be loved.
John 8:1-11. “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”
