Talk about Jesus’s purpose: Don’t do what the heart isn’t prepared for. Jesus was prepared for his journey. Jesus’s purpose wasn’t to patch up Jerusalem like an old cloth with a new patch that will shrivel up, but instead, completely replace the cloth and make it new. His job was to lead a group (Jews) into the kingdom and righteousness of God through Him (Jesus).
Read Matthew 22:15-22
Talk about what God wants: God wants us to give everything to Him. He wants us to give to Him what belongs to Him, which is everything. Basically, we are putting God above all else.
