Turn the Other Cheek

“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.”—Matthew 5:38–39 (ESV)
Jesus teaches that instead of retaliating when someone wrongs you, forgiveness is a better way. The next time you find yourself wanting to get even with someone, reflect on this verse and rejoice in changing your ways and becoming a better person. When you forgive, your heart grows stronger and your spirit grows by responding to future offenses with mercy and grace.
Dear God, it’s not easy to turn the other cheek, but I am trying my best to forgive as You forgive.
