Here are my thoughts on Matthew 5:27-30.

Summary: In this passage, Jesus begins by quoting from Exodus 20:14. He then interprets that commandment, asserting that God wants husbands to be inwardly faithful to their wives. He provides two practical applications of this principle – stressing that husbands need to be ruthless in denying themselves.

Thoughts: I must admit that this sin has plagued me for many years, and I am certain that it will plague me until the next life. Given this sobering reality, I attempt to deny myself on a daily basis. One observation is that the simple act of turning off my computer has been helpful in this regard. This simple step prevents me from viewing content that I am tempted to discover; I also derive satisfaction from the fact that I have struck a blow against a formidable opponent – Satan. Another observation is that ennui causes me to be more susceptible to temptations, so I attempt to guard against it by engaging in productive activities – including blogging.
