05 Aug Mark 11:18

18 The chief priests and the scribes heard this, and began seeking how to destroy Him; for they were afraid of Him, for the whole crowd was astonished at His teaching.”  

On one hand, the children were praising Jesus in the temple and the people were amazed at His teaching and authority. On the other hand, the Pharisees were furious. In fact, Mark writes they wanted to destroy Him. Why do you think they were so jealous of Jesus? Have you ever been jealous of anyone? Think about this: we see two pictures here…one is of praise and worship, the other is of rejection. The question to you is, which picture will you choose? Will you choose to worship and praise Jesus or will you choose to reject Him?
