Narrative Lectionary Key Verse for Today

Then he asked, ‘Why, what evil has he done?’ But they shouted all the more, ‘Let him be crucified!’
— Matthew 27:23

NL Daily Devotion for Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Sometimes I think we were too hard on Pilate.

Hear me out.

The man made a bad choice to listen to the mob who wanted Jesus crucified. But it was an angry mob! Wouldn’t you have felt pressure?

Sometimes we are put between a rock and a hard place.

Some of us manage to move past our bad decisions.

Some of us live on in infamy in a religious creed.

When have you been put in between a rock and a hard place? Do you think your choice was right? How does it impact you today?
