In Matthew 27:24, Pilate’s interaction with the crowd who wanted Jesus crucified stood out to me, When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd, “I am innocent of this man’s blood,” he said. “It is your responsibility!” Pilate knew the difference between doing what was right versus what was unmistakably wrong. Even though Pilate chose not to make a choice, he allowed an unjust choice to be made. When we are faced with a difficult decision, we cannot sit idly by and watch injustice happen. We must stand for what is right regardless of the consequences.
