We can't hide what is inside of us. We might fool some but we won't fool anyone who really looks at this. And we aren't fooling God. The chief priests' motive shown right through them. Pilate saw it. Others saw it too.
The only ones they were fooling were themselves.
Do we do this? If we are having a problem with someone else we should stop and ask ourselves why. Are we loving that person? Have we asked God to give us His love for them?
There is a great post today called "Weep Over Them." It talks about this same concept. God wants us to love others, not fix them, not get frustrated with them. I'll post the link here (and I hope it works -- I'm not real great at this link stuff): http://wp.me/pyPc5-m8
