Matthew 5:20-26

Jesus’ words, “You have heard,” “But I say to you” contrast the law as prescribed by the Jewish leaders with God’s law. Jesus fulfills his Father’s law that has been so distorted. Throughout this section of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus highlights the impact that interior disposition has on action and interaction. The righteousness of a disciple must exceed the hypocrisy of the Pharisees.

Though I am not one to outrightly express my anger, I do let it fester within in me and those feelings affect what I say and do. I pray for interior healing, to be able to let go and forgive.
