Pharisees dragged

Speaking about God’s compassion the story of Mary comes to my mind; she was deeply involved with sin and caught in the act of adultery when the Pharisees dragged her to Jesus, demanding of Him to decide what to do with her. She was ashamed, humiliated and terrified, expecting the certain death as she was brought to Jesus. But Jesus did not treat her as she deserved – He treated her with compassion. And after the Pharisees one by one quietly had left the place, Jesus looked at her. Can you imagine the look in His eyes as He looked at her, the gentleness and compassion? And then He spoke the forgiving and encouraging words, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” (John 8:11).
