ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Tiger Woods is under tremendous scrutiny from unforgiving media. Many say he will not answer their questions. Well, that is his prerogative. They say he owes the public an apology. Not so; the public owes him privacy.

We all sin and come short of the glory of God. When a brother stumbles, we are to do our best to restore him, not condemn him: “Judge not and be not judged” (Matthew 7:1). Jesus said to the Pharisees who condemned the woman caught in adultery, “He of you who has not sinned cast the first stone.” They dropped their stones.

The women who had relationships with Mr. Woods are being praised when they should be put to shame. They knew he was married; therefore, they committed adultery - yet they appear to be boasting. Mr. Woods made a mistake, as we all make mistakes. God is merciful and just to forgive us of our sins if we repent.

Mr. Woods needs blessing, not blame. He needs our prayers, not the pointing finger. Those who point the finger at him probably are doing the same thing he was doing or something worse.

Let’s drop the stones and pray for his restoration.
