Wednesday’s Reflection:  Physical and Emotional Suffering

“It was nine o’clock in the morning when the soldiers crucified Jesus.
Those who passed by derided him.  Those who were crucified with him
also taunted him.”  — Mark 15:25, 29, 32

  • Put yourself in this scene: use your imagination to see and hear Jesus’ intense physical suffering while those around deride and mock him. Use your heart to imagine Jesus’ feelings of physical and emotional suffering.
  • When have you experienced physical and emotional suffering?
  • Ask yourself:  Where in my world are others suffering physical and emotional pain?  How am I to be compassionate?
  • Pray for our ministry partners, His Hands Medical Clinic, Kids First, Lutheran Services in Iowa, and all those who help those with physical and emotional suffering in our society.
