Some of the people there spit at Jesus. They covered Jesus’ eyes and hit him with their fists. They said, “Be a prophet and tell us who hit you!” Then the guards led Jesus away and beat him.
— Mark 14:65 ERV (Read Full Text)
I never cease to be amazed at the thoughtless cruelty that human beings can inflict on each other. No wonder that we human beings needed a Savior who would bear our insults, our violence, our injustice, and our humiliation.
O loving Father, my stomach turns at the inhumanity and senseless violence that permeates the world in which I find myself. Forgive us… forgive me… forgive our propensity for returning violence for violence and our willingness to inflict violence. Redeem our time and our world through the powerful reminder of your Son, who bore our sins and carried our sorrows while under the most inhuman and violent abuse. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
