Jesus’ words may sound sarcastic or even mean, but it was nothing of the sort. He was rather redirecting their attention to a more serious issue. When we give ourselves to things that mean little while ignoring matters of eternal significance, we grieve God, just as Jesus grieved earlier in the Passion narrative on Palm Sunday.
