Mark 14:4
Indignation (n.)--anger or annoyance; provoked by what is perceived as unfair treatment; strong displeasure at something that is considered as unjust, offensive, insulting, or base; righteous anger. 

Watch the feelings that are not expressed:
  1. Just because it's not expressed doesn't mean that it's not there.
  2. Just because it is not there, does not mean that God did not catch it

  1. You have to be careful not to worship it 
  2. It answers everything, which causes people to associate a value to it, which should be directed to God. (300 pence=300 denari =$25,000) a. When you have a habit of blocking people's honor, you will not reap honor yourself.
