Matthew 5:38–42

Jesus said to the crowds, “You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, Do not resist an evildoer. But if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also; and if anyone wants to sue you and take your coat, give your cloak as well; and if anyone forces you to go one mile, go also the second mile. Give to everyone who begs from you, and do not refuse anyone who wants to borrow from you.”


• How do I resist evildoers? How often I tend to revenge for what they did to me?

• Can I sense that doing evil to evildoers leads me away from God?
