    Getting bogged down in the minutia. Just a few minutes ago while reading Facebook, I encountered a friend’s post of a quite serious video. It was political in nature, and regarding something that (for me) the jury is still out on, so I was not inclined to reply either in support of or against. However, I shook my head at the one and only comment the post gleaned: a mutual friend–usually noted for his contrarian views–had posted ‘a spell check’ – seems the article accompanying video (not my friend’s comments about it) had spelled the name of a faction incorrectly. I was like, “Really? (name) That’s all you have?”

    I can just imagine the disgust of Jesus with the Pharisees. Jesus’ teachings were revolutionary to the society of His day…and yet they were concerned with the minutia… Thus Sacred Scripture tells us they watched Him carefully, looking for the tiniest thing with which to accuse Him.

      I had to restrain myself for letting Jesus say, “Seriously? That’s all you have? Come back to me when you can think of something better.” By not taking my attitude, Jesus was able to take an otherwise ridiculous situation and make it poignant for us, along with silencing the Pharisees once again. I LOVE how He does that!
