"Yes and No" Matthew 5:33-37 (Matthew: The Preaching of the King)

As we move deeper through Matthew 5, Jesus continues to challenge the accepted spiritual teaching of His day through his repeated "You have heard it said... but I say unto you" statements. This week, we look at His instruction on our promises, commitments, and truthfulness as He tackles the topic of oaths. While the topic of truth-telling may seem culturally insignificant and minor, it stands as central to our lives and journey with God. Being a "Yes and No" people plays a pivotal role in the Kingdom story God is telling in every time and place.
