Adultery in the Heart

In Matthew 5:27-30, Jesus cites another example in the Law—adultery in the heart, to teach a higher righteousness in the Kingdom of God. Again, Jesus goes deeper into the will of God against adultery. According to Jesus, adultery is not just an act, but an attitude—lust for a woman. Thus, God’s will is that we should cut off the cause of adultery in our hearts. We should cut off the thing that causes us to commit adultery.

Let’s dig deeper into Jesus’ teaching.
