Chapter-a-Day Luke 20

The religion scholars and high priests wanted to lynch him on the spot, but they were intimidated by public opinion. They knew the story was about them. Luke 20:19 (MSG)

I thought it ironic when I read this verse this morning. On the morning news I heard stories of politicians here in the states who were grandstanding against an appropriation bill that contained billions of dollars in pork barrell spending projects. Those who were grandstanding against it were the same ones who pushed their own pork barrell projects to be included a few months ago, before the mid-term elections revealed how angry the public was with congress.

[sigh] There is nothing new under the sun.
