WOMEN’S DEVOTIONAL BIBLE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2019

Matthew 5:27–30

Our society loves the little loopholes—on our taxes, on our timesheets, in the courtroom, in our obligations. But in God’s eyes, violating the spirit of his law is the same as actually breaking the letter of it. Having a sexual fantasy about your handsome neighbor is as sinful as if you had actually engaged in a physical affair. Investing your emotions into a male friend or man you met online and becoming dependent on him at the expense of your husband is an affair, even if you never gave him your body. Lustful thoughts are a breach of the purity God desires for you. God doesn’t honor our “technicalities.”
