Throwing Stones - Ryan Lochte on DWTS

It's sad that some men rushed over to Ryan Lochte on Dancing With The Stars last night, not sure if they wanted to hurt him or just protest.  He messed up, apologized, got banned from swimming for 10 months and lost sponsors.

No one is perfect and we all mess up, the only difference is our mistakes are not on international TV for the world to judge.  People are so harsh towards forgiving others.  So apparently these men have never sinned before because they felt justified to judge Lochte, insert sarcasm.

John 8:7 "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone." I left out the "at her" part since this applies to men here.  When we look to judge another all it should take to humble us is to look at any number of mistakes we have made and this should stop us in our tracks.

Quote - Paulo Coelho

"The world is changed by your example, not your opinion."

~ Paulo Coelho

You can quietly lead by example or you can push others away by being so opinionated that you alienate yourself from the world.  Those who choose the latter will often find themselves on a very high pedestal so far up that they can not see the people that they are trying to change.

The pattern of a river will change over time.  The water will erode the rocks and it will start to look different or a new path will be created.  The river does not plot to change the earth, it just does what it is suppose to do, flow.

If we live out our lives with intent, love and compassion it will make more of an impact than that person yelling from their pedestal way up high.
