We live in an age where retaliation is deemed a personal right. And yet, Jesus taught us the value of “turning a cheek” to those who offend us. Hear Chuck Swindoll explain what that surprising statement means, and what it doesn’t mean, when you listen to today's Insight for Living.

Christ’s teachings continue to bring about powerful transformation and arouse the attention of all who study them. Nothing Jesus stated was ever more profound than His Sermon on the Mount.
