Command 9: Go the second mile and turn the other cheek (video)

Jesus teaches his followers, “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. 41 And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. 42 Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.” Matthew 5:38-42 (NKJV)

With a new directive He commands all disciples to focus on demonstrating God’s love to those who offend them, “But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.” Matthew 5:39

Are people your treasure or are your respect, your justice, your rights, and your things your treasures? “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be” Matthew 6:21
