Matthew 5:38-42

Giving of others because of Him.

"You have heard that it was said, "Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth. 'But I tell you. Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.'"

Matthew 5:38-42

Before we start justifying ourselves....or the New Covenant, or the fact that Christ had not yet finished what He came to earth to finish, once and for all, just look at what He calls us to do.
It goes against the grain of our very self....our very flesh. How could could we possibly do this and.....not say a word.
