Jesus challenges us to have a GOD World (Kingdom) approach to retaliation. Our normal approach to being sued is to defend ourselves or counter sue.
Jesus challenges us to give our enemies what they want and then overwhelm them with love and generosity by giving them something precious they didn’t ask for. GOD’s goal for us is to love. GOD’s way is generosity.
Our heavenly Father doesn’t want us to retaliate. Being generous gains attention for GOD where retaliation is expected.
Jesus sets a standard for us that requires us to tap into the power of the Holy Spirit. It is the power of love.
“If someone drags you into court and sues for the shirt off your back, gift wrap your best coat and make a present of it.” ~~Jesus (Matthew 5:40 The Message)
