What comes to mind when you hear the word “adultery”? According to Webster’s dictionary, adultery is “voluntary sexual intercourse between a married man and someone other than his wife or between a married woman and someone other than her husband.” But is physical intercourse the only kind of adultery? According to Jesus, “whoever looks at a woman to desire her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” Statistics indicate that as many as 60% of men will commit the former; experience indicates that 100% of men will commit the latter. How can we protect ourselves from falling in this area that has wrecked so many marriages and families?
Are you subject to adultery? Are you overconfident? Are you vulnerable or overexposed?
What can you do to minimize your chances of committing adultery?
27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to desire her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Matthew 5:27-28)
