By its very nature life needs to be lived in the pursuit of an object or goal. If not, life tends to wanter aimlessly, much like a ship without a rudder. But having the correct objective/goal to pursue is as equally important, otherwise you might find out to late that what you were chasing after was the wrong thing. Jesus had a lot to say about living a missional life and living it with the proper objective. Jesus' desire was that we would live such powerful missional lives that it would bring would us meaning and fulfillment.
In this blog we are going to look at one of those things that Jesus said "NOT TO DO". Here, on the sermon on the mount, Jesus begins to give a list of things we are to avoid and not do. Avoiding these things will aid us in our ability to shine the Light of Christ brightly in our part of this spiritually dark world. Today, we are only going to look at one of the "What Not To Do's" but as we go through each of them you might begin to experience tension to what Jesus actually says and to we practice in our normal Christian life.
