Jesus has really challenging words for us today (Matthew 5:21-32).  He speaks about hard topics: anger, adultery and divorce.  His words likely make us uncomfortable and even convict us.

Are we simply to cut them down to size, so they don’t hurt?  How can we hear these words as words of life? 

Note:  If you are listening to the sermon instead of watching, you may need to look at the attached image.  About half way through I began to cut a piece of paper in various ways; the three stages are shown in the image.
