Saying 62

(62) Jesus said, "It is to those who are worthy of my mysteries that I tell my mysteries. Do not let your left (hand) know what your right (hand) is doing."

Jesus told his disciples that they had been chosen to understand his mysteries. (Mt 13:11, Mr 4:11 )

This saying is a warning. Goats are on the left and they represent the flesh, sheep are on the right representing the spirit. They have been given knowledge of the mystery and are warned not to let their flesh get in the way and puff them up with pride.

The same temptation faces those today who understand the mysteries.

1Co 8:1 ... Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.
