Commandments (7)

Adultery is when a married person has sex with someone who is not their husband or wife. The seventh law that God gave the Israelites talks about adultery. This commandment is found in Exodus 20:14. “You must not commit adultery.”

Many people in the world today think that adultery is okay. TV shows and social media joke about it. But God’s law has not changed since He gave it to the Israelites. Adultery is still wrong.

One time Jesus was teaching His followers about God’s commandments. Jesus said that a man who looks at a woman and wants to sin with her has already sinned. Jesus said that even thinking about committing adultery is wrong!

As Christians we need to be careful about the TV shows and movies that we watch, the articles we read in magazines and things that we look at on the Internet. God wants us to have pure thoughts. We cannot have pure thoughts if we are constantly filling our minds with sinful thoughts.

Ask God to help you avoid situations where you may be tempted to sin. Read God’s Word and fill your mind with pure thoughts today!
