“If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also” (Matthew 5:40).

Forget walk-in closets with extensive wardrobe selections. The clothing of those to whom Jesus spoke was limited to the long undershirt and the coat worn over it. These were inexpensive items that could be easily replaced. Jesus is essentially saying there are no material possessions worth the damages created by going to court; that I’d rather you go naked than fight. Get your “honor” out of the way and focus on the greater mission.
