Ridiculed

Psalms 22:7 7 Everyone who sees me mocks me; they sneer and shake their heads: (NIV)

Luke 23:35 35 The people stood watching, and even the leaders kept scoffing: “He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is God’s Messiah, the Chosen One!” (NIV)

Jesus not only experienced extreme physical pain, He experienced the emotional plain of people calling Him names and making fun of Him.  Most all of us have been the brunt of insults.  Even adult politicians try to belittle others through name calling.  We’ve most likely been guilty of doing that ourselves.  I have called other drivers stupid.  Jesus’ reaction was forgiveness.  What is our reaction when we are made fun of or called names?  What comes out of our own mouths toward others?  God loves all His creation.  Who are we to make fun of or call others names that attempt to make them more inferior than we think ourselves to be?
