Why be Wronged?

The Apostle Paul tells us that instead of taking brothers to court, why not be wronged?

That is an interesting concept.

An Eye for an Eye

38“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ 39But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. 41If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. 42Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.  -Jesus Christ, fr. Matthew 5.

My mom a while back, said this is hard to do.  My wife tells me its kind of dumb.  But, this is Jesus’s way.  And He is the Way.

The point is do not be afraid to be ‘taken advantage’ of, to be wronged.  Be a giver for the LORD.  Give your body, your belongings, your time, your energy, your money…to win people for the LORD.   Don’t be afraid to give your all to the LORD.  After all, He can fill you up, again and again.
