Be Prepared to Suffer

If you take your Bible literally be prepared to suffer physically. For if you’ve taken the Lord’s advice many times more than twice and turned the other cheek to prove that you are meek and demonstrate to all your piety it’s likely you’ve had costly surgery. For the Lord’s true intent – please note – was never meant to suffer another's provocation, much less a brutal altercation, rather walk away uninjured and better for it, than carried on a stretcher.

So true, Maurice. Sometimes I am astounded that many folks do not gain understanding from the word, but want to take it literally, a sad mistake! Some are still trying to crawl through a Needle's Eye! And that's merely one example!

Very true. Defend the vulnerable, the weak. Suffer insults, not assault.
