Hey Buddy, Got a Dime?

Jesus said, "Why did you come out to the countryside? Did you think you would see a reed shaken by the wind? Perhaps to see a person dressed in soft clothes, like the rulers and the ones in authority? They are dressed in soft clothes, and yet they cannot understand truth." Gospel of Thomas 78

This saying is very similar to the one said in the mainstream gospels though in them Jesus was talking about John the Baptist.  However in this gospel it is implied that Jesus may have been speaking about himself.  In this saying Jesus is reminding us that the wrapper does not tell us the deliciousness of the candy.  There are folks with shiny suits, nice cars and beautiful looks who will make you feel like a million bucks and perfectly validated who are poison to the soul.  There are those who are the rejects of the world that may have realized the truth and if we are not careful, may ignore in favor of the bright shiny lights.
