Whenever I read this passage, I always think of the phrase "true colors." The term refers to the idea that an individual may act a certain way most of the time but under the right circumstances, their true nature will show itself. While this often comes with a negative connotation, in this case, it is actually the opposite. Jesus, in his earthly appearance, didn't look any different than any of us but on the Mount of the Transfiguration, three of his disciples got to see him in all his glory as the Son of God. In that moment, they saw Jesus' "true colors."
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff.

And when the people pointed with oohs and ahhs towards current events, Jesus asked them to learn from the past to recognize that some things are not as significant as the eternal choices.

Karen hates church. She feels it's a place where people are brainwashed. She thinks the people who go to church are weak, looking for a crutch in sermons that tell them how to behave. Karen clearly has an issue with established religion.
