Mark 14:65

"And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands."
Mark 14:65

The things in this verse are happening to Christ... and although it is horrible that this happened, I think that we do this sort of thing a lot.  We condemn others out of jealousy or envy.  We don't want other people to have more power, authority... beauty, wisdom whatever it is... than we do.  And when someone clearly excels, we sometimes feel like we want them to fail, and come back down in the dust like the rest of us.  ... why is that, I wonder?  We all have talents, and we don't all succeed at the same things, but we seem to have these power struggles all the time... even with God.  ... and although I don't think (hopefully) that we go to this extreme in battling God, we do have a hard time with humility and submissiveness, with God and with our fellow mortals. :)  Something to think about today... let's try to lose ourselves a little today.
