Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you. You have heard it said, "You shall not murder,” but I say to you that if you insult a brother or sister, you will be liable. So when you are offering your gift at the altar, if you remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother or sister, and then come and offer your gift. —Matthew 5.21-24
The law of God is not a gate you make it through, not a finish line you attain. It is the road toward relationships of healing, blessing and justice.
The law of God is not a target you can hit or miss. It is the bow that shoots you toward perfect love.
The law of God is a metaphor for awe which you wonder about out loud until you become a metaphor for love.
Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
