“One of them, an expert in the Law, asked [Jesus] a question to test him.” (Matthew 22:35)
Some people ask questions, not to gain greater enlightenment, but to try and prove how enlightened they already are. They are not humble learners, but proud showoffs seeking attention from others and smug satisfaction for themselves.
And yet, Jesus still answers.
One man questioned Jesus, wanting simply to justify himself, but Jesus still responded to his question. Why?
Because Jesus wanted to give him a chance.
Jesus wants to give you and me a chance, too.
Even when your motives aren’t entirely pure, come to Jesus. Then, let His truth change your heart. It will make all the difference in the world…and beyond.
