Eye for Eye


In the Old Testament, there was a law saying an eye for an eye, meaning that if you fought with someone and poked out their eye, then you would have to get your eye poked out in return.

This all was a way to keep people from being mean to each other so they didn't get punished.

When Jesus came along, he told people that if someone slapped you on one side of the face you should not hit them back.
Even more than that you should turn the other side of your face even if they wanted to hit you there too.

Jesus wasn't telling us to go get beat up by a bully, he was just trying to tell us that we shouldn't fight people, just walk away from fights.
