Couldn't Bear to Watch

I wonder if some of the disciples ran from Jesus, not because they feared arrest or death, but because they couldn’t bear to watch him suffer for his love?  

Perhaps their motivation was mixed, but he was still alone, bereft of friends at the darkest of moments.  

The love that turns away from love— right when he chooses to suffer for his love— is that truly love?
