"Then the soldiers….took Jesus into the governor’s headquarters, and they gathered the whole cohort around him. … After twisting some thorns into a crown, they put it on his head. … They spat on him, and took the reed and struck him on the head."  ~ Matthew 27:27, 29; 37:30

Thought for today:
Christianity is neither a popularity contest nor a bed of roses. It is the proclamation of Christ-centered truth while often wearing a crown of thorns.
