Turn the Other Cheek

Note in the Gospel records, that the writers are at pains to point out that they struck Jesus with “the palm of their hand.” So, perhaps Jesus did literally “turn the other cheek”.... BUT He also questioned “why” - as in... “Why is this important to you”… “that you should smite me?” which is a good line to use when dealing with those who are dishing out any kind of abuse – especially verbal and/or spiritual abuse. And the follow on challenge to that question is... “You can do better than that!”
