Help for Today: A “Valentine’s Day” True Picture of Love

She was looked at as a means to an end. The men who drug her to the feet of Jesus, caught in the very act of adultery really had no regard for her. It was Jesus they wanted, and they absolutely were convinced they had Him. With this “means to an end” thrown at His feet, they were sure whatever He said would open the door for an accusation against Him. And so they waited. As the Teacher wrote on the ground they waited. After writing, they witnessed Him get up and make a statement. “He that is without sin among you let him be the first to cast a stone.” As He bent back down to His spot where He had written to continue, they were cut to the heart. Beginning with the oldest, one by one, they left the sight. In their minds He had done the impossible. What He said was perfect. They had to walk away. Jesus was left alone with the “means to an end.” He was left alone with the one “caught in the act.” With the simple phrase, “Go your way and sin no more” He put into life practice a principle of love for humanity He had taught and would continue to teach. See the true value of your fellow man. See the value of the soul they possess. Understand the price that was paid for them. Practice. Love. Today…

All the best and I hope this gives you “Help for Today”
