This Gospel of Matthew continues the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus teaches that there is more than what the ‘old law’ demands. Christ called all of his followers to a much greater ‘law’ in how to love, as Fr. Jim calls it ‘tough love!’
Fr. Jim explains what Jesus meant when He said, “if anyone hits you on the right cheek, offer him the other as well.” Jesus was not asking us to be abused by another, but rather He was asking us to show mercy instead of retaliation.
