Matthew 6:34 (KJV)
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
When I was in Bible College, I was taught that the Sermon on the Mount was an offer of the kingdom to the Jews. The result of this teaching is to dismiss the details of the Sermon as impracticable in today’s world. The Protestant teaching that the church of Jesus Christ did not begin until Acts 2 results in the same effect. “The Sermon on the Mount simply will not work today.” Some teachers of hyper dispensation turn the Gospels, especially Matthew, into books whose application finds place during the Tribulation. It produces the same effect; the Sermon on the Mount is impractical in today’s economy.
Of course, those same teachers will hand pick certain phrases from the Sermon and make some application.
I challenge us that our place is to practice the Sermon on the Mount and see if God would not bless those who do so.
