John Allen Chau. It seems like everyone has had an opinion. The opinions have been pretty strong. If you are unfamiliar with the story, on November 17, Mr. Chau was killed by North Sentinelese people as he attempted to make what is thought to be his third attempt to develop relationship with this remote tribe. Contacting the Sentinelese people is prohibited by the Indian government.
Humility isn’t a very popular topic these days, is it? We are encouraged to put ourselves first, share every accomplishment on social media, post daily selfies, and make a name for ourselves. As Christians, we know that not all of this is good. But it is very difficult to pick our way through this minefield while we are immersed in our own culture—to know what is OK and what could lead us more and more into a self-focused life.
Congrats, you made it. You got through four years of college working those underpaying odd jobs and now you are finally working full time. In my situation, it was really five years of college as I jumped right into a master’s in education program and continued working in a teaching residency that paid very little. I kept dreaming of my full-time paycheck and everything I could one day afford.
