Serving the Word: Mt 5, 38-42

Matthew 5, 38-42:
“I, on the other hand, say to you.

Jesus corrects the old law of “an eye for an eye” and “a tooth for a tooth” and beyond it
He tells us that we present the other cheek when they have struck us.
We must give without measure to those who ask and we must not change course when we see it coming.
We must always forgive and without conditions.
We must respond to evil with good…
And other things like that call into question our normal way of acting.
Jesus wants us to learn the logic of the generosity, of Christian charity.
He wants us to work so that his Gospel is really GOOD NEWS increasingly present in our world.
Put in your grain of sand to change yourself.
And also work to change the scale of values that surrounds us for the scale of values of Jesus.
Good day.
