Matthew 7:1-11
RS 335-19


When you get to Matthew 7, which is the last chapter in the Sermon on the Mount, the most famous sermon in history, there is a lot of intriguing stuff. There are ludicrous things and there are some strange things in this sermon. It isn’t so much inspiring as it is a convicting and brilliant piece of teaching.

Verses 1–6 are talking about relationships, the kinds of relationships Jesus Christ wants us to have in the Christian community. Let’s look at the first six verses and see the kind of relationships Jesus Christ wants us to have, the kind of heart you need in order to conduct those relationships, and where to get that heart.
