Love not condemn

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:16-18.

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:30-32.

That saved a wretch like me

Years ago I watched a dark comedy starring Bert Reynolds. In it the character he was playing, feeling sorry for himself, decides to end his life. Going to a beach he dives in the water and swims far out into the ocean. As he swims he justifies to himself why he is taking his life, until he becomes exhausted, and unable to take another stroke he stops, sinking into the water to breathe his last.
