It’s easy to know the difference between right and wrong. The challenge is when you know what’s right won’t be easy. Right decisions are usually costly, risky or unpopular, but at the end of the day - they’re right! Pontius Pilate found himself stuck between what he knew to be right and trying to appease a bloodthirsty crowd in the wrong. He tried to make both happen, but the result was one compromise after another. Pilate’s choices eventually led him to betray that which he knew was the right decision. While our decisions today are radically different, the question still stands: Will we be conquered by compromise or conquer compromise?
