Scripture: Matthew 5


11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

And lots of red letters:

Jesus says we’re the salt and light to the world. He says he came to fulfill the Law, not abolish it. He points to the heart on issues of anger and lust and divorce and oaths and retaliation and love. He wants true righteousness in us and He wants perfection for us. This is only accomplished by us being covered by His sacrifice. He’s perfect so we can be blessed and therefore bless the Lord with our lives. Shine for Him.

Journal: Write a prayer about one of the issues in this chapter that affects you: anger, lust, divorce, retaliation, etc.

Move: Rest or Re-do.
