Re:Verse passage – Matthew 12:9-13 (day four)
It was a trap…an ambush! The Jewish religious leaders were trying to catch Jesus into saying something they could use against Him. It reminds me of Wylie Coyote trying to catch the Roadrunner. A new plan, a new trick, a new device to help him to outsmart and catch the elusive Roadrunner…but it never worked! Each scribe, each Pharisee, each lawyer, or each Sadducee…they all had a plan to trip Jesus up…but it never worked! Jesus always saw through their deception and His wisdom and ability to go directly to the heart or truth of the question never failed to silence His would-be accusers.
Have you ever wondered how someone could come up with such wise responses to today’s problems? Wisdom comes from spending time in God’s Word. In Acts 4:13 it says, “Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus.” So you haven’t been spending time with Jesus? Do you believe it is too late to start now? Start now…read Scripture daily…it’s never too late to start!
