In Matthew 19:13-36 Jesus is talking to a rich young ruler who asks Him a question: “…what good thing must I do to inherit eternal life?” Having kept all of the commandments since his youth, the rich man asks Jesus, “What do I still lack?” Jesus tells him what he must do to be found perfect “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me” (vs. 31). We all want to be perfect. We see it in many of the details of our lives. Jesus makes it clear there is only one way to be perfect: “come, follow me.”

Conflict will arise among God’s people. Matthew 18 makes it clear that Jesus demands that His people work to resolve conflict between each other. We often cite verse 20 as an encouragement to worship together. It reads: “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” While this is a true statement about those times when God’s people gather together to worship, the context of the chapter makes it clear that when two or three people gather together to resolve conflicts between them, Jesus is in their midst. The final parable about the Unmerciful Servant stresses the importance of this truth for us.

In Matthew 5:21-26 Jesus addresses the source of our anger. When its all about me my anger makes sense to me; but, where does God fit in? When its all about HIM, my anger helps me determine where I fit into God’s providence. What is He working to bring about in me as I examine myself and my relationships with others. What God allows us to do is to learn to depend upon Him to react in a way that is consistent with the cross of Christ. This challenge is as big as life itself!
