Day 32 Jesus on Adultery Matthew 5:27-30 (Also consider 18:8-9; Mark 9:43-48)

Jesus knows our human weaknesses and challenges us to consider how to discipline ourselves

Guided reflection:

  1. Jesus knows that sexual sins begin in our minds and hearts… then become actions. Do you know when you are being tempted?  What do you do?
  2. Jesus wants folks to know that we must regulate ourselves – even if it means going blind to not look at someone in a lustful manner… what personal safe guards do you have for your temptations – where or when are you most vulnerable?  What can you do to keep from sin?

Guided Prayer:

“Loving God, you know my weakness – help me be honest about my own vulnerabilities.  Grant me wisdom to come up with a plan of actions that will keep me pure in your sight.  (Make a list with God on how to protect yourself from pitfalls)  Amen”
