Through the Bible in 90 Days: Day 75
Read: Luke 20:20-John 5:47
Verse that stood out: The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him. They blindfolded him and demanded, “Prophesy! Who hit you?” And they said many other insulting things to him - Luke 22:63-65
Mocking someone else is one of the easiest ways to feel better about oneself. Put another person down and for some odd reason, you feel lifted up. Who knows what our thought process is? "I may be sorry, but I'm not as sorry as you?" is that what we think? What pitiful judges of character we are. We mock the very Son of God. It wasn't just the soldiers, after all, who belittled the Messiah. We do, too, everytime we mock one made in his image.
