Have you ever been made fun of? I have and it can be hurtful. In this passage Jesus is not only being made fun of but also abused. When someone makes fun of me, it reminds me not to make fun of those around us. God made each of us unique and special and we should celebrate each other instead of tearing each other down. Today I’m celebrating that God is the King of my life.
27 Some of the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into their headquarters[a] and called out the entire regiment. 28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him. 29 They wove thorn branches into a crown and put it on his head, and they placed a reed stick in his right hand as a scepter. Then they knelt before him in mockery and taunted, “Hail! King of the Jews!” 30 And they spit on him and grabbed the stick and struck him on the head with it. 31 When they were finally tired of mocking him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him again. Then they led him away to be crucified.
