Jesus was able to clear the temple of the thieves
and yet captivate the audience.
He was able to share God’s message of love
with those who sought it,
yet convict those who merely pretended.
He was able to stand against
those who came against Him,
despite the fact that those who came against Him
were afraid of the opinion that those He taught had.
Jesus was able to call the religious out,
without stooping to their level.
He was able to amaze
And silence them by His response.
