There has been a case here locally that involved the death of a child. The accused were foster parents trying to adopt the child. The woman has just been convicted of capital murder. I read of the verdict on our local newspapers website. The judgement from the public is harsh.

I do not know this woman. Most of you do not know her either. Apparently we've all forgotten the lesson of "those of you without sin may cast the first stone." The jury convicted her because she "failed to act". That to me does not say she meant to harm him. She made a poor choice and will pay a great price. But if you have ever made a poor choice and gotten away will a small price, then THANK GOD. If you have ever driven drunk and not killed anyone, THANK GOD. If you have ever hit your kid and didn't have CPS bust down your door, THANK GOD. (Go kiss your babies in bed), and THANK GOD. If you are out sleeping around and haven't caught something or gotten pregnant, THANK GOD.

Each and every person on this planet has made bad, awful choices, time and time again. THANK GOD that the price you pay does not cover the bill. THANK GOD that he cared enough for you to pick up your tab.

Romans 3:22-24 22This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, 23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
