Paying back of injury, often vengefully, seems to be the most common human response. When Jesus says, “Do not resist an evil person”, what do we do with these words? When does this teaching actually apply? What are the ramifications of non-resistance? What are our choices? Our God is a generous and gracious God who invites us to live with mercy and compassion. How do we in our world today live the way Jesus taught us? Is it possible or even reasonable to live graciously and generously? Can we refocus our approach and look for new ways to respond?

I vividly recall being asked by the clerk whether I was prepared to solemnly swear to tell the whole truth. It felt for me, as a young and idealistic 17 year old, as if the ensuing pause was laden with meaning and significance. Adopting a posture of courage and resolve, I announced, “I affirm.”

The immediate response from court officials was unremarkable. The clerk looked a puzzled, and the judge gave little attention to declaration. “Ok then,” the judge stated, “let’s get started.” I began wondering, and still wonder, how our Mennonite tradition of taking Jesus’ words against swearing oaths actually fits within a practice of contemporary discipleship.

There is a lot of stigma associated with divorce in our society: even more so in the Bible. Jesus adds a new dimension to the older teachings and opens the door for us to add to the conversation.

Where can we find grace and forgiveness when we mess up our relationships? A personal story is offered as encouragement to anyone who has been there.
