Today, let's focus on where we feel guilt.

Find a quiet space. Sit up tall, and close your eyes. Set a timer for one to two minutes per movement so that you can be fully present (or increase the time if you want a longer experience).  
 


 

First, pay attention to God. 


Take slow, deep breaths. Focus on the spot that you feel the breath in your body. 
  • As you breathe in, think, "Jesus did not come..." 
  • As you breathe out, think, "... to condemn me" (John 3:17).

 

Second, ponder your inner world.


Process the following with Jesus:
  • Whose voice feels the most condemning right now (others or my own)?
  • What do the condemning voices say? 
  • What does Jesus say? 

Third, prepare to love others.


Ask Jesus to help you answer the following:
  • Who am I condemning or guilting?
  • Why do I have a judgmental attitude toward them?
  • How can I love them like Jesus?

A closing prayer:

Jesus, you gazed down upon the weeping, guilty woman and said, "He who is without sin cast the first stone." All her condemners walked away.

But you stayed, and you were without sin. You had the right to condemn and yet showed mercy. 

Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner. Let the weight of your love overwhelm this burden of guilt and prove to me that I am free. 

Amen.
 

Peace be with you until next week,
