Only 10% of an iceberg is visible above the surface. We enter a time in our series, A Higher Standard, where Jesus presents six statements that are far deeper than they initially appear; we don’t want to miss the higher standards to which He is calling us. In this passage, we learn that people are the very image bearers of God, and our response to conflict should reflect that Kingdom perspective. Kingdom people are people of reconciliation. We should be pursuing forgiveness of others, striving towards love, and bearing one another’s burdens.


Matthew 5:21-26
