God: will bring the direction in time…
St. Matthew 15:12 (KJV) “Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying”.
In the course of having conversations, at times it can be comfortable or just get so tense that you literally itch to be out of the company of the person(s). At the same speed, in the same circumstance, when you have to be circumspect in everything you are saying, it doesn’t bode well with your conversation or the relationship.
The major purpose of Jesus interaction with the Pharisees in this instance was to teach them a better way and most likely identify their short comings in an effort at correcting their current perspective.
Despite his manner of dealing with the situation, one thing is evident: they took offense at what He was instructing them or pointing out to them. You ever been in that dilemma? There are situations where you have insight knowledge and you bring it to the attention of those who might make a perilous mistake and after it is all said and done, they treat you like a Pariah; folks resent you and call you a know-it-all etc.
It can be tedious at times, but what will you do? Just like Jesus did, continue doing well, sharing your knowledge, telling the truth in season and out of season, be consistent with the Word or your knowledge. Persecution will come, but depend on Jesus to guide you in when to speak and when to be silent; this is the will of God.
