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.”
…From yesterday…
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.
They felt they were also qualified to hear from God, after all, Moses was by far their junior! The last born of the family!
They were envious of the call of God upon the young man. They painted the picture of a disobedient Moses to the whole world, whereas deep within them they wanted his place! Unfortunately for them, however, God heard their “motive” not what they told the people!
Friend, it is those hidden stuff in your heart that God is listening to. He knows us inside out, not outside in! For many people, their motives have been the very reason stopping their blessings!
Let us consider one or two more scenarios.
1 Samuel 15:3 “Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.”
This was an express and direct instruction to King Saul. He got the message and went to do as commanded, but then:
1 Samuel 15:9 “But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all [that was] good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing [that was] vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly.”
To be continued…
