Good fences make good neighbors
In today’s sermon we look at the extensions, the part of the Sermon on the Mount when Jesus shares some Hebrew scriptures, but expands them. Does he really think that just being angry is enough to condemn us? No, he does not. But he does realize that sometimes one thing does lead to another, and he helps us set up fences, or guardrails, around our actions to protect us from harming ourselves, and others.
