John 7:53-8:11
John 7:53-8:11
53They went each to his own house, 1but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2Early in the morning He came again to the temple. All the people came to Him, and He sat down and taught them. 3The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst 4they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. 5Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do You say?" 6This they said to test Him, that they might have some charge to bring against Him. Jesus bent down and wrote with His finger on the ground. 7And as they continued to ask Him, He stood up and said to them, "Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her." 8And once more He bent down and wrote on the ground. 9But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before Him. 10Jesus stood up and said to her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" 11She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more."
3 Things to do when dealing with difficult people...

Be Humble

John 7:53-8:2
53They went each to his own house, 1but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2Early in the morning He came again to the temple. All the people came to Him, and He sat down and taught them.

James 4:6
6But He gives more grace. Therefore it says, "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."
Use Wisdom

John 8:3-8
3The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst 4they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. 5Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do You say?" 6This they said to test Him, that they might have some charge to bring against Him. Jesus bent down and wrote with His finger on the ground. 7And as they continued to ask Him, He stood up and said to them, "Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her." 8And once more He bent down and wrote on the ground.

James 1:5
5If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
Always Be Willing to Forgive

John 8:9-11
9But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before Him. 10Jesus stood up and said to her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" 11She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more."
