The crowd are loud.
The priests are angry.
The rulers are confused.
The disciples are scared.
Jesus is calm, accepting, quiet.
How do you feel when you stand at this station?
Do you feel calm like Jesus?
Or do you feel angry for him?
Jesus models how he'd like us to behave when we are treated badly:
- be quiet and composed
- rise above the person causing hurt
- turn the other cheek
Jesus knows we find this hard but he's ready to help us.
We just need to stand at the station and ask for help and strength and peace.
