6/22/13 Daily Devotion

Exodus 20:14 “You shall not commit adultery.

Some people feel that the Bible is constricting. They feel that its whole purpose is to keep Christians from having any fun or fulfilling desires that are found within their hearts. Why can’t we have our cake and eat it too? Why can’t we just be allowed to do some things that we can’t really find wrong? If it makes sense to us, if it doesn’t bother us, if it doesn’t really hurt anyone, why can’t we do as we wish? All of our actions have consequences; all of our actions have consequences. Even if we see no immediate results or consequences, all of our actions have consequences. Take today’s verse for example. Maybe having an extra martial affair comes with no issues at first, but that quickly changes for all involved. When we break our commitment to another, we lose our ability to trust others. We know that we have not been trustworthy ourselves, thus we believe deep within our hearts that no one else is either. It’s that simple and that life altering. We are all better off if we just trust in the guidance of God’s Word.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me lean not on my own understanding but on the wisdom found within Your Word.
