Matthew 5, 6, & 7 are the 3 chapters some call the "Sermon on the Mount".

It is a major talk by Jesus to a large group of people on the side of a mountain.

It is jammed full of all kinds of good stuff.Every time I read it I see something differently.

Here's just a small 6 verse section of it, but just those 6 verses can change the trajectory of your life & thinking.

Mathhew 5

 "You have heard the law that says, 'Love your neighbor' and hate your enemy.

 But I say, love your enemies!

        Pray for those who persecute you!

45 In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven.

For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good,

    and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.

46 If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that?

     Even corrupt tax collectors do that much.

47 If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else?

    Even pagans do that.

48 But you are to be perfect,

     even as your Father in heaven is perfect.

How different would our lives be,

     the paradigms we move in & through,

     & in turn, all of our world,

     if we lived these 6 verses
