Are we Murderers?

May 21, 2023

Matthew 5:21
You have heard that it was said to the ancient ones, ‘You shall not murder;’ and ‘Whoever shall murder shall be in danger of the judgment.’

I don’t know about you but at first, I was like “whew thats not me”. BUT then in the next verse it explains that this kind of murder includes being angry at your brother. Yikes!

Vs 22 “But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.”

This is not just biological “brother” but also includes our brothers within the family of God. Double yikes! How many times do we get angry with fellow believers about silly little things and then hold grudges? Too many to count? Today let us pray for those who make us angry and maybe ask God to convict us of our own attitude of anger.
