A new take on turning the other cheek
As we strive to see a higher, spiritual view, forgiveness becomes a natural part of loving both ourselves and our neighbors.
Christ Jesus said, “Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: but I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also” (Matthew 5:38, 39).
I used to think turning the other cheek meant allowing someone to repeat an offence. But recently it occurred to me that it can mean instead to change our perspective. Maybe it’s a call to think differently about the individual who wronged us. After all, when you turn your head, your view naturally changes.
