January 7, Luke 23:1-16 Try to make everyone happy
Pilot is a politician and as such his objectives are to make a personal profit and keep everyone happy. The first is possible but the second is not. People today still haven't figured that out, you can't make everyone happy. As soon as Pilot realized that he could pass the decisions over to someone else, Herod, he did so. But that still wasn't enough. Herod too was a politician and sent Jesus back. The problem when wanting to please everyone, what happens is that the loudest group get's more attention even when the cause is wrong. This is a failing in the nature of man, we still have the same problems today, what's right or wrong is no longer as important as making people happy.
