“The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine, and saying, “If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself!”

Many men and women aspire to power. They want political positions, corner offices, titles and authority. When you meet them they usually have grand offices, wear expensive clothes and have people around them that clue you into their power. Yet, our Lord and King, Jesus, cuts a very different figure. We see him bloodied on a cross, attended by no one except for the soldiers who put him there and they mock him. Jesus teaches a lesson that history has not yet learned. The powerful are called by Jesus’ example to be humble, to be approachable, to be servants. Look around for those who display these qualities and you will find leaders worth following. We are called to follow Jesus and those who are like Him.
