Matt 5:38-48

We have come today to the most difficult and misunderstood teaching of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount. Christians often ask, how can I give everything to the one who sues me, offer my cheek to the one who strikes me, and give to everyone who asks something of me? Would that not impoverish everyone who tries to do that?

Today we will answer this question, but to that, we will add something vital. We will learn the secret of living a grace filled life, one that truly is the light of the world. Living the way Jesus taught is not only possible, but it is liberating and is the only hope for a troubled world.
