Reflections for February 16, 2014

Matthew 5:21–37

God wants us to be reconciled to one another and to have integrity in our relationships. In today’s focus scripture, Jesus shows us how we can live closer to God’s ways and truly love one another. He gives us the examples of coming to terms with our anger with another, being principled in our relationships, and being true to our oaths and promises to one another. These matters of the heart – and matters of the spirit – turn us inward to seek the meaning of not only who, but whose we are.

Something to think about, talk about, or do:  This week reach out to a friend or family member with whom you’ve had a disagreement or with whom you’re angry right now. Reconcile and let love guide your conversations.
