Relationship Over Revenge

Seventh Sunday after Epiphany, Sunday, February 27th, 2019

Hate, jealousy, exploitation, these are the things that cause suffering and harm. The teachings of Jesus shows us a society that represents God’s Kingdom. Love, Peace, Forgiveness, Justice.  You see, Jesus pointed to a radical paradigm shift in which one gives up their right to revenge. Jesus presented the world with an alternative to “the harsh reality” of the world. Rather than entering into a mode of escalating violence which leads to more and more death, Jesus told his apostles, disciples and even the “crowd,” to do something radical.  Love your enemies and do good to those who hate you.
