Mt 5:20-26


Today’s Gospel begins with the basic premise to Jesus’ sermon. The disciple’s goodness must be sincere and not hypocritical like that of the Pharisees. He goes on to the first of six antitheses. Murder is wrong but so is anger felt and expressed, which can lead to far worse.


I pray to always be willing to reconcile with others. I know it’s not easy and may not bring the desired results, but you have taught me that it is the disposition I must have and be willing to act on.
