When God doesn’t perform as we think he ought to. “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” In the passage, Martha uses exactly those words in addressing Jesus, and so does Mary. “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” The statement is true, isn’t it? If Jesus showed up more often and behaved worthily—that is, divinely—then our lives would look very different. In the case of the story, Lazarus, the brother of Martha and Mary, would not have died. We could apply the same principle to our circumstances, too, changing only a few words of the line Mary and Martha used. Listen in.
