John 12:3 “Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.”
John 12:4 “Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s [son], which should betray him,”
John 12:5 “Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?”
John 12:6 “This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.”
Learn to listen to people’s words carefully; they always betray their Motives. The bible says:
Luke 6:45 “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”
Luke 6:45 “It’s who you are, not what you say and do, that counts. Your true being brims over into true words and deeds.” (MSG)
Mark 7:6 “He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with [their] lips, but their heart is far from me.”
The words a man says can betray his real motives. God knows your heart and your motives.
Back to our scripture in Numbers 12: 1 & 2. Miriam and Aaron were busy castigating Moses for marrying an Ethiopian lady. They said that was why they were angry with him. What they said was correct, because Moses actually did that. They were probably instigating the people against Moses for that action, but then that was what they made the people believe. That was not their motive!
Numbers 12: 2 revealed their motive. The real reason they despised Moses was envy! They couldn’t stand the fact that it was only Moses God was talking to.
