Jesus Doesn’t Make It Easy – ‘Easy Adultery’      

Adultery has become part of our entertainment. Modern media has hardened us to the pain of adultery for all parties involved; however, we’ve not spent much time on heart adultery. What will it mean to guard our hearts and minds against objectifying and marginalizing others? Jesus’ imagery is pretty drastic when he says we’d be better off with our eye gouged out than for our eye to lead us down adulterous paths. How do we guide our thoughts to keep clear of easy adultery?

This week’s #WholeLifeTakeAways: 

  • What do you imagine Jesus might have been teaching that would give the listeners the idea that he was abolishing the law?
  • How convinced do you think the crowd was when Jesus said he didn’t come to destroy but to fulfill the law and it wasn’t changing?
  • What do you think the people expected to follow when Jesus said, “You have heard…Do not commit adultery…but I say?
  • How have you thought about the “lustful look” as compared to what you heard today regarding “greedy sexual idolatry”?   
  • What are some of the ways you see sexual greed being idolatrous today-how is it usurping God’s place?
  • What is the relationship of today’s topic and husbands and wives who expect their spouse to provide for them what must come from God alone?
  • What do you think about the four ways greedy sexual idolatry evidences itself- pornography, using sex selfishly, unable to be whole without it, expecting a fairytale to make you happy?’
  • What safeguards are you going use to guard your heart?
  • Which of these takeaways resonated with you this week? We would love to hear your feedback and you can reach us at any of the methods below:
