The Ten Commandments: 7 of 10† Do not commit adultery. Horizontal relationships – relationships between people – are crippled at the outset unless the vertical relationship – the relationship between each person and God – is in place. Ed Young
Again, Jesus takes one of the commandments one step further. He tells us that if we look at someone else with “lust in our eyes” we have committed adultery in our heart – certainly a challenge for most humans. But we can turn to God to help us strengthen the relationships with our spouses and friends. Ask God today to help you focus your attention to your loved ones.
Teaching About Adultery. “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
