22 Mar Matthew 5:39

39 But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.

Jesus provides several “word pictures” to help His followers understand an entirely new perspective relative to those who may oppose us. The first picture is of a disciple of Jesus “turning the other cheek” to one’s enemy. In contrast to striking back, Jesus focused on righteousness. When you are attacked, do you “absorb the blows” or fight back?
