Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys

There’s a Polish proverb that says: “Not my circus, not my monkeys.” It’s a way of saying, “Don’t drag me into your drama and your issues—I’m not getting involved.” Sometimes people try to drag us into things we were never meant to be part of. In the early church, some people were trying to drag new believers into a way of believing that was never meant for them, and it only made people want to leave the church. But Jesus' brother had a better idea for the way forward.
