Don’t forget this : Reconcile with your opponent before you are summoned to court. Matthew 5:25

Jesus had not come into this world to remind people, as other religious leaders do, of commandments new or old. His coming is not to destroy the Law and the Prophets but to fulfill them. As long as heaven and earth last, not one letter of the Law will change until all is fulfilled. In Jesus’ time the Law had several meanings : First of all, it meant all the commandments and practices based on the teaching of Moses.

So then, whoever breaks the least important of the commandments, and teaches others to do the same will be the least in the kingdom of Heaven. On the other hand whoever obeys the Law and teaches others to do the some, will be great in the kingdom of Heaven Matthew 5:19. We will never enter the kingdom of Heaven if we are not righteous in a better way than the teachers of the Law and Pharisees. Jesus refers to the spirit of the Law regarding righteousness.

When Jesus proposed a perfect law, he did not intend like other Jewish teachers to reform the religious laws or to increase them : He exhorted us to receive the spirit which inspired the Law. The spirit of the Law is to imitate God for his mercy than the commandments. Jesus has given us the perfect Law by showing us the Father and how to live in his sight. One day, before God we will give an account of our life.

Therefore, we must not continually delay the moment for settling accounts and for rectifying our lives. Better now than tomorrow not only to repent but to repair the damage done which symbolizes the kingdom of Heaven in the beatitudes.

Obey God’s law first before considering the laws of man.
