TEXT: Matthew 5:38-42
The extremely litigious nature of American society has been well-documented. Newsweek reports that lawyers make up the country's most popular profession. People file lawsuits almost as frequently as they go to the doctor -- and for the pettiest of issues. For example, one man sued McDonald's because they cup of coffee they gave him was extremely hot. In this culture of litigation, it is likely that you will be sued or threatened with a lawsuit at some time in your life.
How should a Christian respond to a lawsuit? Jesus says, "If any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also."
