“Some of the scribes answered, “Teacher, You have spoken well.” And they no longer dared to ask Him anything.”
Luke 20:39-40 HCSB
Experts in the words and history of the Torah, Scribes were continually provoking Jesus to trip Him up on His own words. While Jesus didn’t welcome their interrogation He also didn’t duck tail and run. His answers ranged from returning questions with questions, to parables the Scribes couldn’t interpret, to returning challenge with Scripture, always addressing the real questions behind their queries.
Likewise, as Christ followers we must prepare ourselves for the difficult probes others may ask in hopes of snaring us to shame the Gospel. In a world thriving on sound bites which destroy, may we each call on the Holy Spirit for wisdom to give us answers which do not destroy, but with love and truth bring glory to God and draw hurting people to the foot of the Cross.🚦
