Week 35 Day 3
when people are asked what they believe
a typical response is
the golden rule
the sermon on the mount
yet portions of the sermon on the mount
because they point us in ways
that interfere with what we want to do
in many conflicts
verbal or militaristic
the response of the combatants to each other
is characterized by the three r's
but Jesus said there is a better way
and that is to
love your enemies
do good to those who hate you
bless those who curse you
pray for those who abuse you
Jesus has a different way
for dealing with conflicts
and it is characterized by
a different set of three r's
THAT'S WHAT THE MAN SAIDAbout forgiveness, money, faith, choices and smart building.
Matthew 5, 6 & 7
44"Bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you,
45be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on
the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust.
9"In this manner pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your
name. 10Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it
is in heaven. 11Give us this day our daily bread. 12And forgive
us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13Do not lead us into
temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Thine is the
kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
14"If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father
will also forgive you. 15 If you do not forgive, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
19"Do not lay up treasures on earth, where moth and rust
destroy and thieves break in and steal; 20but lay up treasures in
heaven. 21Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
25"Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what
you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is
not life more than food and the body more than clothing?
33"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,
and all these things shall be added to you. 34Therefore do not
worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will worry about its own
things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
1"Judge not, that you be not judged. 2With what judgment
you judge, you will be judged. 3Why do you look at the speck in
your brother's eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?
5First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will
see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
7"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find;
knock, and it will be opened to you. 8Everyone who asks receives,
he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
13"Enter by the narrow gate. Wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14Narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
21"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the
kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father.
24"Whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will
liken to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain
descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on
that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock." This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
