“Carrying the Cross” by Terry M. Givens

Read the scripture from the gospel of  Mark 15:21.

As Jesus carried his cross, many people stood on the road and watched. Some were moved to tears. Some were amazed at the scene. Some maybe thought he deserved this punishment.  But Simon was moved to help. 

As we walk on the road with Jesus, we are all passers-by. What will our response be to a suffering innocent? What will be our response to Jesus?

Today’s Activity: How are you helping someone else get through this crisis? How are you helping carry the cross for another?
