Love Is Not Resentful

There’s a time right before Jesus gets to Jerusalem, where he will be executed on a cross, when two of his disciples essentially ask for a promotion. They say, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you…Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.” This request makes the other disciples angry or indignant or resentful. Why are they so upset? There must be more to the story, though these two disciples are quite brash.

This moment helps us to know how to brew resentment. It also helps us to think about how to brew love. Like God does.
