Matthew

Matthew 5 Commentary-C H Spurgeon

MATTHEW 5:1-12 THE KING PROMULGATES THE LAWS OF HIS KINGDOM

This is the natural order of royal action. The King is anointed, comes among the people to show his power, and afterwards acts as a Legislator, and sets forth his statutes.

Matthew 5:1. AND seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him.

Matthew 6 Commentary-C H Spurgeon

 

MATTHEW 6:1-18 THE KING CONTRASTS THE LAWS OF HIS KINGDOM WITH THE CONDUCT OF OUTWARD RELIGIONISTS IN THE MATTERS OF ALMS AND PRAYER

Matthew 6:1. TAKE heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye hate no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

Our King sets men right as to Almsgiving. It is taken for granted that we give to the poor. How could we be in Christ’s kingdom if we did not?
