<127> Thesis: To be involved in the Master's Plan in a beneficial way, we must adopt Mary's attitude toward Jesus. Introduction: The world we live in operates in a rather consistent program of death. The most basic principle of that death is the imposition of "my" agenda upon all others. The attempted imposition of "my" agenda upon others arises out of both an enormously corrupt value system and an equally corrupt belief system that I have so whitewashed as to be totally blind to the maggots that feed there. In fact, the world has gotten the issues so mixed up that it rebels mightily against a God Who stands for an inalterably healthy "agenda" with accusations of His enormous wickedness for "imposing His agenda upon us" while never answering the question of the cause of the rebellion. There is only one cause: the desire to impose an alternative agenda. And, just as there is only one cause for rebellion, there is only one solution to it. That solution is unveiled by Luke in 2:6-7.
