Scripture: Matthew 5:27-32
27"You have heard that it was said, `You shall not commit adultery.' 28But I say to you that every one who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away; it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell. 31"It was also said, `Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.' But I say to you that every one who divorces his wife, except on the ground of unchastity, makes her an adulteress; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
the terrible accountability that we must set no stumbling obstruct in the way of another, that is, not give offense or bad example that might lead another to sin. The young in faith are particularly exposed to the bad example of those who should be passing on the faith. Jesus teaches that virtue involves responding to every situation in life in a way that fulfills God's law, not just outwardly but internally as well. Jesus says that evil desires spring from the heart. That is why the sin of adultery must first be dealt with in the heart, the place not only of the emotions, but the mind, will, thought, and intentions as well. God’s intention and ideal from the beginning was for man and woman to be indissolubly joint in marriage as “one flesh”. That ideal is found in the indestructible union of Adam and Eve. They were created for each other and for no one else. They are the pattern and representation for all who were to come. Moses permitted divorce as an allowance in view of a lost ideal. Jesus sets the high ideal of the married state before those who are willing to accept his commands. Jesus gives the grace and power of his Holy Spirit to those who look for to follow his way of holiness in their state of life - whether married or single. If we want to live justly as God desires for us, then we must know and understand the meaning of God's commands for us, and decide in our heart to follow the Lord. Through the gift and working of the Holy Spirit, the Lord writes his law on our hearts and gives us his power to live his way of virtue and holiness. Do we trust in God’s love and allow his Holy Spirit to fill you with a thirst for sanctity and righteousness in every area of your life?
