Day 83/260: Read Mark 15
What was wrong with this crowd? How could they be so deceived that they chose to release a rebellious murderer rather than the King of kings and Lord of lords?
Certainly, we would never make such a poor decision, would we?
But when we speak ill of our brothers and sisters, our neighbors, and others who are made in the image of God, do we not do the same?
When we lie, cheat, and steal, are we not serving the adversary rather than the Anointed?
When we allow ourselves to be deceived by the wisdom of the world, are we not offering ourselves up to be devoured by the devil?
Are we not choosing Satan over God?
Let us take care that we do not judge others who made mistakes, because we too often make those same mistakes! Yes, the Jews chose Barabbas over Jesus; many times we make the same foolish choice today.
