Do I Think I’m Better Than You?

Matthew 27 - Collage on Jesus mocked

“Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the governor’s headquarters, and they gathered the whole battalion before him. And they stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on his head and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” And they spit on him and took the reed and struck him on the head. And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him and led him away to crucify him.”

Matthew 27:27-31

This photo is a collage I made as I was thinking about this scripture. It is amazing how much they mocked him, how much they thought they were better than Him. Even though He had done nothing to them. 

It reminded me of myself as well. How I often think I’m better than someone else. As humans we are all the same deep inside. It’s only Jesus who was different. He is always there with open, welcoming arms. No matter what we’ve done.
