Chapter-a-Day Matthew 5

"In a word, what I’m saying is, Grow up. You’re kingdom subjects. Now
live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and
graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you
." Matthew 5:48 (TM)

I’m blessed to work with other believers in a company whose mission is to live out the Message in the corporate world. I remember a young believer who spoke to the founder of our group and said that people in his call center would talk about the members of our group. They could tell that there was something "different" about us by the way we treated each other. God used that ‘difference’ to convict the young man of his need for Christ. Man, if that doesn’t give ‘work’ a whole new perspective and motivation!

The whole intent of Jesus’ sermon on the mount (Matthew 5-7) is pretty well summed up in today’s verse. Grow. Mature. Live out what you believe, especially in your relationships with others.
