Daily Encouragement ~ 1/26

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: Matthew 5:21-22

Again, Jesus is telling His disciples and the crowd that’s gathered to listen to Him that the word of God has been tampered with by man. This is His message through most of the Sermon on the Mount, and in most instances He points out that man has attempted to shape the laws of God to fit their own lives and agendas. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

But here’s the thing: Jesus isn’t trying to make things more difficult for those who want to follow Him; He’s actually making it easier. That was His job after all; to create a path of forgiveness so that we could follow Him to everlasting joy, peace and life with the Father!

We should not allow ourselves to be angry with our brothers in Christ, and here’s the good news: If you spend your time loving God and looking to Him for guidance, you won’t be angry, because He will fill you with His love and Spirit. I truly believe when we concentrate on God and the good things, the bad will fade away.

Try it! I think you’ll like it!

    i don’t read the bible and i’m certainly no expert on it. but jesus had a practical message of exposing the authorities for making life more difficult for poor people just as he had a spiritual message of peace within. that’s my understanding.
