Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, “Here is a true Israelite. There is no duplicity in him.”
Jesus could read people very well. Since He was fully committed to loving and serving God He had the ability to see inside the hearts of others and to know their motivations. Jesus sensed that Nathanael had pure motivations and was not “two-faced.” How often do we really examine our own motivations as to why we do the things we do? Are we motivated by loving and serving God? Let’s face it…we all sometimes have selfish and at the very least mixed motivations. That’s why it’s a good idea to never judge someone else’s motivations…and to sincerely work on our own. When I’m motivated by love of God and neighbor…then I am on the path to becoming my true self.
