Thoughts so far

Lots of good nuggets to glean from this book. One of the biggest impacts for me has been remembering that God works in blessings/curses, which is obvious when you read the Bible, but somehow along the way I forgot that, or maybe it has to do with me not taking the old testament as seriously as I should have.

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. -- Matthew 5:17-20 (ESV)
