practical non-violence pt. 3

Finally, in his third illustration, Jesus speaks directly about Rome.  "If a soldier forces you to carry his pack one mile, carry it two."  Roman law entitled a soldier to require a Jew to carry their equipment (backpack), but it was equally clear that they could demand nothing more than one mile.  Jews had little choice but to begrudgingly tolerate this humiliating violation of their personhood, which reduced them to nothing but human packhorses.  But rather than telling people to stand up for their rights by refusing to submit to such an appalling abuse, Jesus adopts a far more creative, shock tactic.  Carry the soldier's pack a second mile.  Demonstrate generosity in the face of this outrageous indignity and imposition.  Rise above it.  Do the unexpected.  Turn the tables and so regain your dignity.

By now the laughter from Jesus' hearers would have became raucous.  They knew that if any soldier took up their offer, he could well find himself in serious trouble with his superiors, who were extremely disciplined in the implementation of the commonly accepted social laws.  In fact, it was more than likely that the soldier concerned would end up literally begging the willing "second miler" to stop and put the pack down in order to avoid the possibility of tough and humiliating disciplinary action from his commanding officer.

i am tremendously blessed with the opportunity to serve our Savior in Argentina alongside some dear friends and comrades this summer.  then again, i am tremendously blessed to be breathing right now.

I thought your post was timely and relevant. Thank you very much for penning this trove of information;
if more writers wrote intelligent and time-worthy musings, I think we'd all understand life better.

I, personally, think we might place our
attention more on staying fit and eating well and escape from being always on the computer
or I-Phone screen. Going outside (and not being
glued to the cell phone all the while, either) and living free, living life in full appreciation of the randomness and patterns of nature, helps people feel sane and feeling joyous.

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?
I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your design and
style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't
mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head
before writing. I've had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend
to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
