John 7: 40-53

What does this gospel say to us today?  How quick are we to pass judgment on a person or situation without first looking into the matter ourselves? How many times we pass judgment on someone based on gossip. We are quick to judge someone who always comes late for Mass or who does not come to Mass as often as we think they should.  How many rumors and misinformation can ruin a person’s reputation and how often are we party to such things.  Do we have all the facts? Do we base a decision on what we know or on what we have heard?
