prayer diary Saturday June 1, 2013

(The religious authorities, having challenged Jesus' authority, but unwilling to answer his challenge as to source of John the Baptist's authority, answered): 'We do not know.' And Jesus said to them 'Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.'
 Mark 11. 33

Reflection
To those with eyes to see & ears to hear, the authority of Christ was evident. The authorities of the day sought words so they could twist them against him, but Jesus could not be caught in such a snare. His example is something for us to keep in mind when challenged by those who seek debate solely for the purpose of sneering and mocking.
