Jesus: Hey, Gary.
Gary: Hey, Jesus. What’s up?
Jesus: Well, I noticed that you’ve been asked by people to do a something.
Gary: And I complied. I totally came through.
Jesus: I know. You did exactly what they required.
Gary: Totally did. Thanks for noticing.
Jesus: Do you think you could have…you know…done a little more?
Gary: I did what they asked! To the letter of the law!
Jesus: Yes. Yes you certainly did. You performed the bare minimum.
Gary: I’ve been very transparent to what’s legally required of me.
Jesus: I know. We covered that already. But you could have done more, right?
Gary: Have you seen how I am attacked? Have you seen what’s happened?
Jesus: Yes. I did indeed see that. But you could have done more, right? In fact, you could still do more…right?
Gary: The more I do, the more I get attacked, the more I get questioned, the more I get pushed.
Jesus: So…you are more concerned with what they say about you…than if you and I know more could be done?
Gary: Well…but I…I did what was required.
Jesus: I am pretty sure I told you that people would attack you for doing the right thing, didn’t I?
Jesus: You thought I didn’t mean it? That you might have to endure taunts? Disrespect? Accusations?
