Good Friday

A pause from the mayhem to focus on what really matters...

And Jesus took the bread, saying, “This is my body, which is broken for you.” At the time, no one else in the room knew the meaning of those words. As the disciples ate and drank heartily, laughing and enjoying each other’s company, Jesus sat, knowing that only a few hours later, he would begin to endure what is known throughout history as one of the most brutal forms of torture and death—crucifixion.

It is so easy for us to be like the disciples, laughing, talking, enjoying our friends, or basking in the glory of a hard earned accomplishment. Let us pause for a moment and remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us so long ago.
