Pew Leaflet Sunday 12 February 2017

If you look at all the “laws” Jesus offers in today’s reading you will see that he moves from outward observance to heart attitude in every case. Instead of focussing on murder, Jesus confronts anger. Instead of adultery, he confronts lust and the abuse of women in divorce. In place of vow-making, Jesus calls for a commitment of heart that requires no dramatic promises. The law can control the worst that human beings can do, but it cannot motivate people to live up to their best. Only a heart that is transformed by love can do that, and that is the essence of Jesus teaching. How can you allow love to transform you a little more into your best self today? (Sacredise)
