Read Matthew 5 today.

Matthew 5:1-2, 21-26 NLT[1] One day as he saw the crowds gathering, Jesus went up on the mountainside and sat down. His disciples gathered around him, [2] and he began to teach them.
[21] “You have heard that our ancestors were told, ‘You must not murder. If you commit murder, you are subject to judgment.’ [22] But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell.
[23] “So if you are presenting a sacrifice at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, [24] leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God.
[25] “When you are on the way to court with your adversary, settle your differences quickly. Otherwise, your accuser may hand you over to the judge, who will hand you over to an officer, and you will be thrown into prison. [26] And if that happens, you surely won’t be free again until you have paid the last penny.
This is one of those chapters in the Bible where a single reading simply will not do. It begins with the introduction: the teacher is teaching His disciples. There is a relationship between them. The teacher was taking them to a new place. The teacher was introducing them to new thoughts. The teacher was challenging some long and deeply held thoughts.
Read this chapter again. Note the things with which you agree. Now make a note of one thing with which you disagree or struggle. Take some time to sit with the teacher about that thing. Why do you disagree or struggle with it? What would happen if you trusted the teacher in this area?
