Tell her to help me!

[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;”] M [/dropcap]artha had something to prove to Jesus – the unfairness of her workload compared to Mary, sitting at the feet of Jesus. But Jesus’ attitude was revealed when he refused to tell Mary to help her complaining sister.  He said, “Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:42)

The injustice is anchored in our perception that we have something to lose, something existential.  We receive this injustice as an personal affront – an indictment.  ”Why me?” we cry out.  ”Why am I afflicted and she is not?”   We will never have peace until we don’t take out injustices personally. Jesus drove this point home in the parable of the vineyard workers (Mt 20). The last one hired was paid the same as the one who worked all day.  Life is not to be compared to those around you, hard as that may be to actually do.

The Jesus Attitude is John Kuypers’ newly updated book from his original seminal work, The Non-Judgmental Christian (2004).  You can learn more at www.nonjudgmentalchristian.com   Stay tuned for the new version coming in early 2014.

When we have nothing to lose, we don’t see life as a comparative competition versus others. It is between God and you. How God treats others is not for us to judge. This results in our having the Jesus Attitude where we freely accept the choices life gives us, even if they are not the choices we wish to have been given.
