The religious leaders tried to provoke Jesus' anger. In one instance, the Pharisees brought an adulteress to Jesus and asked Him to convict her. When Jesus wrote in the sand, He was showing them how He bought time and prayed before responding to the accusers and the woman. We often get in trouble when we answer too quickly. Most of us are slow to listen, quick to speak, and quick to anger. Although they were trying to trap Him into either saying that scripture was wrong about Moses or letting the adulteress off the hook, He responded by saying "he who is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone." That simple statement was so convicting that everyone left except the accused woman and Jesus. The number one lesson we should learn from this is to take our time and answer slowly.
