Whenever Jesus was asked a question, He also answered much more than just the question. Such as His answer to the question of the disciples of St. John the Baptist: whether or not He was the one "that should come". This answer contains instructions for how to live our life properly. As is the case with almost all of the Gospel it is counterintuitive to the vast majority of pop Christianity, some of which has even invaded the Orthodox faithful. We should not be overwhelmed by the austerity of Jesus teaching. It is quite easy to fulfill His teaching if we always struggle to live up to the limits of our ability, even if our ability is very small.
