Jesus was the kind of guy who got straight to the point.
When Martha came to Him complaining that her sister, Mary, wasn’t putting in her fair share of work, He quickly redirected Martha’s priorities,
“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:41-42
When the crowds of Capernaum closed in around Him, begging that He would stay and heal their physical maladies, He drew their attention to His greater work and their greater need,
“I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose.” Luke 4:33
When His disciples cried out to Him from the boat, fearful that the squall would take their lives, He sternly corrected them,
“Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” Mark 4:40
Jesus never shied away from cutting through our insecurities, ignorance, or fear to get to the heart of the matter. And nowhere is this as apparent as in His teaching of The Lord’s Prayer.
