Luke’s account of the trials of Jesus are narrative and do not report the cross-questioning of Jesus. The next time Jesus’ words are recorded are when He is carrying His cross through the streets of Jerusalem. The route was lined with women who were weeping and Jesus said to them:
Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me; weep for yourselves and for your children. For the time will come when you will say, ‘Blessed are the childless women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’ Then they will say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us!’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us!’ For if people do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?’ Luke 23:28-31
Jesus was on His way to the cruellest death known to the Roman world, yet He still thought of those who were weeping on His path to the cross. What is happening in your life at the moment that seems too big for you to handle? How are you inviting Jesus to be involved? What is He saying to you? How does His love and compassion help you in such situations?
May God bless you with His love and care today.
