Bury my father and turn the other cheek
drmlanc Wrote:Can someone comment on these? Are they idioms? I heard "bury my father" actually means something more like palliative care


"turn the other cheek" - does it really mean, "allow the guy to kick the cr
ap out of you?"

This may sound a little cryptic, but by turning the other cheek I understand it to mean...since all of God's ways are mercy and truth, or wisdom and understanding....if someone knocks the truth of what you say, show him mercy...if someone abuses your mercy, tell him the truth...or if someone knocks your wisdom then show him your understanding (and vice-versa) All this is related to a proper balance between Tamim (blamelessness) and Shalem (intimacy with God)

Shlama lukhon!
