Matthew 5:38-42

38"You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.'[a] 39But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. 41If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. 42Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you."

NIV- from

The Lord spoke to me about my boss this morning in this chapter. My job is a challenge, as I'm sure everyone else's is... and this chapter really important when thinking about you job and what you're " entitled" to... i hate that word, becuase it really puts us above making ourselves avaliable to the Lord and His Will... we think we have " rights" as Americans and sure, we do, as far as our country and our lives are, but to the Lord, our right is worshipping Him and living out His Will. That's that, and until we figure that out, and Love without expeciting things back, life will always be hard.
