Insulting Thief On The Cross

Jesus was not drawn
to the people whose
lives were perfectly
put together.

Jesus was drawn
to people whose
lives were not
all together.

People just like us.
In fact, some of
the people He
interacted with
were a real mess.


Think about the
story of the thief
on the cross.

We see in that
even in Jesus'
last hours on earth,
God chose to put
Jesus in close
proximity to two
really messed-up
people, two
common criminals.


One of the criminals
hanging alongside
Jesus hurled
taunts at Him.

Think of it:
in his last moments
of life, as his last
act in the world
this dying man
a thief, on the cross
chose to wound
another person
by insulting Him.

(Ref. to Luke 23: 32-33) .
