YIELDING (Not Unto)

January 2, 2015

Friday

 

Matthew 5:28

 

But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
 

LESSON

 

Jesus proceeded to clarify God’s intended meaning in the seventh commandment. The rabbis in Jesus’ day tended to look at “adultery” as wrong because it involved stealing another man’s wife. They viewed it as an external act.356 Jesus, on the other hand, saw it as wrong because it made the lustful individual impure morally, an internal condition.

In our modern society, some of the Ten Commandments are ridiculed, and others ignored. But I think this 7th Commandment is actually hated by many.
