This week's devotions all come from stories about Jesus where he displayed acceptance and empathy toward sinners. Each devotion is focused on meditation on the passage rather than analysis:

• Begin with a prayer of thanksgiving to God for his acceptance of you.
• Read through the passage quietly at least twice. Try to imaging yourself in the situation. Ask yourself who you most identify with in each story.
• What acceptance and empathy do you see God extending to you through this story?
• What acceptance and empathy do you sense God calling you to extend to others from this story?
• Pray and ask God to show you a specific person or group that he wants you to show acceptance and empathy towards today.

DAY TWO

- Jesus's mother and John

John 19:25-27(NIVUK):
25 Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing near by, he said to her, ‘Woman, here is your son, 27 and to the disciple, ‘Here is your mother.’ From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.
