Our arms lighter

letting go of our stones
our judgment of our neighbors
defining them as others
until challenged by Jesus
maybe not written
what happened next
not told in the bible
but truth be told
we were different
some of us at least

when we dropped the stones
when we no longer stood in judgment
our arms lifted, they were lighter
our arms raised up to God
to share this blessing
all of us called
to repent, to turn to Jesus
to love as He loves
without any judgment
to love unconditionally
