This is a rare picture! In this distant, aloof and impersonal society it is unusual to see someone care so much about beauty as to be willing to cry over it. Its nice to know that passion is not dead and I know this because it is worn on her face. But, it hurts to care, it hurts to love and as with all things there is a price to pay. If you put your heart out in the open where others can see it, they is a chance someone may just step on it. Jesus had just given a stern rebuke (the seven "woes") and then he says these words...
Matthew 23:34-38 (WEB)
34) Therefore, behold, I send to you prophets, wise men, and scribes. Some of them you will kill and crucify; and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city;
35) that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zachariah son of Barachiah, whom you killed between the sanctuary and the altar.
36) Most certainly I tell you, all these things will come upon this generation.
37) “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets, and stones those who are sent to her! How often I would have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you would not!
38) Behold, your house is left to you desolate.
(Matthew 23:34-38, WEB)
I wonder, was it easy for Jesus to say these words? Even though he KNEW that he would be a victim of Jerusalem, he still said them. Obviously, he cared. How could someone do so much for others NOT care? He showed his caring by giving the gift of himself and that is greater proof than any tear on the cheek could be.
