Last week we went away with a clear indication that when it comes to the Lord it is not the size of our offering what is important but the total dedication of our hearts. But even with this lesson about the offering of the widow the disciples are still impressed by size. This time the size and the awesomeness of the temple. In listening to our scripture readings today it nearly sounds destructive in listening to what Jesus said while looking at a majestic building these disciples were so taken by, a piece of extraordinary architecture, actually a real work of art. Destructive because He made the statement that it will come to nothing. That every stone will be flattened to the ground.
