YOU ARE ABOVE THE LAW

UNDAILY Episode 68


For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven. “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell. “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift. “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.


MATTHEW 5, 20-26 (NIV)

 

The message quoted by Saint Matthew is as relevant today as if it had been written this morning, not centuries ago. Let's examine the words that break the barriers of time, touching the essence of our existence, our relationship with God and with people.

 

Have you ever wondered why in ancient times people had so many detailed norms and regulations instructing them how to live? Or perhaps, in our times, we replace them with other rules - only now we call it "social etiquette," "norms," or "political correctness"? All to outwardly appear as "good people" or an "exemplary society." But is that really it? Is all this necessary to enter the Kingdom of Jesus?
