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!

The story of the Pharisee and Tax Collector who both went to the temple to pray is instructive to the 21st century Pharisee…like me! The Pharisee was not a legalist because he gives credit for his righteous behavior properly to God. Not only did he do what was required by the law, he played it safe by doing even more. Yet, Jesus says that he did not go home justified. Apparently, the Pharisee put confidence in the fruit of God’s work in him and concluded that he was, therefore, righteous before God. Suddenly passages like Romans 3:21-31, for example, make sense to a modern-day Pharisee like me.

In Matthew 6:25-34 Jesus addresses the contrast between the pursuit of money versus the pursuit of God (Matthew 6:19-24). The source of our anxieties are often based in our desire for the things of this world rather than living by the will of God. We obey His commands when we learn to trust God for the necessities of life to do His will. When we are absorbed by the pleasures of this world and become anxious about them we lose sight of God’s will in our lives.
