Saints and Scripture St Dismas

Sirach 8:5 Do not revile a repentant sinner, remember that we are all guilty.

St Dismas is the classic example of the repentant sinner. St Dismas was the repentant thief crucifying and dying next to Christ. We should not revile him or any other repentant sinners since as Romans has reminded us, "All have fallen short of the glory of God". We are all sinners and all of us have need of repentance. Just remember, but by grace of God go I.
May God bless all who read my ramblings,

So true! And something we should all be mindful of, as our culture seems to encourage gossip and judging others. Thanks for the reminder!
