Live Like It

I've been reading the Sermon on the Mount this week, in the Message, just for a change of pace.  As I started through it yet again this morning, the following verse caught my attention:

"In a word, what I'm saying is, Grow up. You're kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you." (Matthew 5:48, The Message)

My copy of the Message is all highlighted with notes scribbled in the margins... i appreciate so much the way it's written. :-)

I sort of go back and forth on my feelings about The Message, but most days I like it, and I'm loving the sermon on the mount in it these days.
