Jesus Doesn’t Make It Easy – ‘Proper Payback’
You punch me, so I punch you back. In the Bible, it’s called the lex talionis or the law of retaliation. Of course, one of the problems is that, if you punch me, I don’t want to just punch you back; I want to punch you back just a bit harder than you punched me. Rather than revenge, how do we move to reconciliation? Jesus' teaching about proper payback was meant to stretch us.
This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: When has someone gone the extra mile for you? How did that feel?
