Agree with Your Adversary Quickly

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus challenges us to pursue greater righteousness than the Scribes and Pharisees, but what does this greater righteousness look like? He warns us about the destructive potential of anger, that anger for no cause is tantamount to murder. Thus, we should seek reconciliation quickly; reconciliation is more important than worshipping God and we should not trust third parties to settle disputes on our behalf. In these instructions, strains of humility, meekness, and peacemaking rise to the surface, compelling us to a higher plane of morality.
