The Two Imposters

On The Triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem we hear the multitude of his disciples singing ““Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”  and in a little while that very multitude of his disciples will be numbered among the crowd who shout “Crucify him, Crucify him”.

At the Jewish Passover the Jewish family will dip a spring vegetable into salt water to remind them that Success or failure, suffering or Joy are two sides of life and that if they accept one, then they must accept the other.

Prayer: Lord may my life not be measured by my success or failure but like Jesus, by my faithfulness to your holy will.
