Mark 12:13-14 ” Later they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Jesus to catch Him in His words. They came to Him and said, ‘Teacher, we know You are a man of integrity. You aren’t swayed by men, because You pay no attention to who they are; but you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.’ “

Both these groups were already plotting on how they could kill Jesus. Both had ulterior motives for wanting to “catch Jesus in His words.” But they all couldn’t deny certain things they had observed about Him. He was authentic, honest, and sincere…and they recognized this and hated Him even more. So how does the world see you? Are there things the world can’t deny about you? Does it see integrity…with a daily reality of things that show a true and intimate relationship with God…or does the world just see another person getting by?
