Each day Jesus was teaching at the temple… and all the people came early in the morning to hear him.
What a beautiful sight it must have been.
People rising early in the morning, coming eagerly to the place where they could hear the voice of the Teacher!
Is there yet any better reason to get up in the morning?
Whatever else these students might have done those mornings is no longer important to them.
The truths they gained from Jesus remain timeless.
Ironically, while some were enthusiastically listening to the teaching of Jesus, one of His closest students made arrangements to betray Him.
And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus. They were delighted and agreed to give him money.
Listening to the voice of the Teacher anytime is still the most beautiful choice a person can make.
