Thursday, January 29. Matthew 5:33-42
I really like how the Message version translates this passage. Let me make today’s lesson really simple:
- Don’t talk too much and try to sound smart or holier-than-thou. Just say what you mean, and be honest.
- Don’t seek vengeance. Be generous with everybody, even those who you think don’t deserve it.
The way of Jesus is simple, but really hard. But, the simple way of love is the way that leads to life and freedom.
I’m going to take Jesus’ advice today, and keep it simple. Have a wonderful day.
