SCRIPTURE – Today’s video is based on Mark 15:16-21. Here is an excerpt “They began to salute him with, ‘Hail, King of the Jews!’ and kept striking his head with a reed and spitting upon him. They knelt before him in homage. And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the purple cloak, dressed him in his own clothes, and led him out to crucify him.”
REFLECT – I can’t imagine the pain of the heavy wooden beam of the cross sinking into the exposed flesh of Jesus’s shoulder. I can’t imagine it because I don’t handle pain well. Today, spend a few minutes contemplating what Jesus went through as he carried the cross. Allow yourself to enter into the story.
SHARE – Invite someone to pray the stations of the Cross with you.
PRAY – Thank you for your suffering, Jesus. Thank you for loving me even at my worst. Let me understand your love and how you love me where I am today. I try to earn your love, but you give it freely. Give me a greater capacity to receive your love. I give you my heart and my life today. Amen.
