Have any of your actions ever been misunderstood? You hold a door open for someone and they think you are being sexist, or if you don’t you are being rude? You offer to help and they think you are questioning their abilities when the reality is that you have time on your hands and the thought of playing another game of solitaire on the computer drives you up the wall?
Do you ever question the actions of others? Assuming that since they aren’t invested in what you are invested in that they don’t care?
Then perhaps you can understand the situation facing Mary. (Not that Mary! Read the passage John 12:1-8) Might be surprised how this story goes, but then that was 2 weeks ago!)
