35While Jesus was teaching in the temple, he said, “How can the scribes say that the Messiah is the son of David? 36David himself, by the Holy Spirit, declared, ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet.”’ 37David himself calls him Lord; so how can he be his son?” And the large crowd was listening to him with delight. 38As he taught, he said, “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces, 39and to have the best seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets! 40They devour widows’ houses and for the sake of appearance say long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.” (Mark 12:35-40, NRSV)
How can this be? I don’t understand because logically it doesn’t make sense to me. This is really where we get into trouble because when we want to make logical sense out of things that don’t make logical sense we stop believing them,
A lot of what we believe is completely on Faith. We must step out and say I can not logically explain this, or understand this but I believe it.
Sometimes things don’t make sense to us. We have to have faith and step out and believe.
