It is easy to be deceived when we are focused on the wrong things. Some of Jesus’ disciples were fixated on the adornments of the temple. The beautiful stones and with gifts dedicated to God. “Look, Teacher! What massive stones! What magnificent buildings!”, they exclaimed to Jesus. He was unimpressed with the temple and less impressed by their amazement. Were they not focused on the wrong things? Were they amazed at the temporary trappings, when the Messiah was in their presence? Were they being deceived? We can all learn lessons from Jesus’ responses. To hear how the Good Teacher responds, please listen to the sermon by Pastor Robb.
