seeing stupid sin & fearing to do the same

Mark 15


And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing [their] knees worshipped him.

I was thinking about how the people who mistreated the Lord, mocking Him before He was crucified, were so stupid. Then I realized how easy it would be for me to fall into the same kind of sin. They could have argued that they thought they were doing what was right. They didn't fully realize that what they were doing was against the Lord, they thought it was just against this person, Jesus.

We should fear the Lord so that we never fall into such foolish sin. We should realize in our interactions with other people, if we do harmful things to them, that's just the same as if we were doing them to the Lord. Ultimately, all of our sin is against Him.
