As I left the theater, some people behind me were talking about a character in the movie, saying that “He was too honest to be trusted.”
My mental reaction to overhearing that was: “You’re kidding. Too honest to be trusted?”
But then I remembered that Jesus’ opponents said something very similar about him: “Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You do not show personal favoritism, but teach the way of God in truth.” (Luke 20:21)
Yet… they opposed Jesus.
Clearly, they knew better, but somehow didn’t want to do better.
I need to look at myself to make sure I’m not doing the same thing.
