MARCH 16 – LUST

03/16 Matthew 5:27-28
“You have heard that the law of Moses says, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust in his eye has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
LUST
Anything that leads to lust should, must be given up. Christ calls us to an ethic of purity of thought and action. This speaks to our sensual culture which focuses on whatever feels good do it. The current openness to sexual expression and sensual achievement has led to the loss of meaning in everyday life. God has been carefully erased from life. Spiritual values emphasize selfish gratification and exploitation of others. People wonder why life is losing meaning. Jesus’ teachings oppose the social order freedoms that our society believes in today. Do not is no longer accepted as basic to our personal faith.
