Turn The Other Cheek
Have you ever "turned the other cheek" in a confronting situation? In that moment, did you begrudgingly become a doormat to be trampled on by your offender? Or perhaps you felt moral superiority as you took the high road in non-retaliation? Neither of these attitudes seem Christ-like...so what was Jesus asking us to do in turning the other cheek, handing over our coats, and walking the extra mile? Pastor Amanda explores the history, context, and application of Matthew 5: 38-42. Sermon starts at 8:56.
