Matthew 5

Matthew 5 is packed full of great teaching by the Master!  This chapter needs to be read through several times to comprehend all the different teachings contained in it.  He covers many subjects including the beatitudes, divorce, adultery, law suits, law keeping and more.  How awesome it must have been to be sitting on the mountain listening to the Teacher and his wisdom. 

My favorite of the beatitudes is verse 7, “Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.  (NRSV)  It reminds me that I need to be merciful to others because the thing I need more than anything else from God is his mercy.

Have a great day,
Doug.
