Jesus Teaches the Fullness of the Law

 

Matthew 5:38-48

 

Jesus Christ said let someone slap you twice.

Let someone else take your coat and your cloak.

If you are forced to go one mile, go two.

Give to beggars and be willing to loan.

 

Jesus Christ also said pray for those who

Persecute you and love your enemies.

God makes the sun shine on good and evil.

He makes it rain on the just and the unjust.

 

It is easy to love those who love you.

Jesus said hello to everyone.

Keep the law to attain God’s holiness.

It’s a requirement, not a suggestion.

 

Be like our perfect heavenly Father.

The Beatitudes are my bucket list.
