“I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.” Matthew 5:39. Jesus’ words about turning the other cheek, going the second mile, and giving to those who ask may sound as radical and unrealistic to us as they did to those who first heard them. Are we willing to ponder and pray about His teaching? Are we ready to apply it when we are wronged? The cycle of escalation can be broken when a courageous, faith-filled person refuses to strike back. To return good for good is natural, to return good for evil is supernatural.
