MARCH 20 – FREE

03/20 Matthew 5:38-42
“You have heard that the law of Moses says, ‘If an eye is injured, injure the eye of the person who did it. If a tooth gets knocked out, knock out the tooth of the person who did it.’ 39 But I say, don’t resist an evil person! If you are slapped on the right cheek, turn the other, too. 40 If you are ordered to court and your shirt is taken from you, give your coat, too. 41 If a soldier demands that you carry his gear for a mile, carry it two miles. 42 Give to those who ask, and don’t turn away from those who want to borrow.

We are not bound by the way others act. They cannot choose our actions. We have the Kingdom Ethic as enunciated by Jesus and we respond to others as the Lord Jesus directs. Do good to those that mistreat you and love your enemies. Do not repay evil for evil but instead do good to those that mistreat you. Do not be overcome by evil instead overcome evil with good.
