What are God’s priorities for human beings? What does he consider to be of most importance for human flourishing and well-being? Historically, both ancient Israel and the church have found guidance to this end in the Ten Commandments. These rules for living are more than simply ethical imperatives. They pinpoint those aspects of life – both faith and behaviour – that are essential for true joy, fulness and meaning. Dallas Willard wrote, “A time will come in human history when human beings will follow the Ten Commandments… as regularly as they fall to the ground when they step off a roof. They will then be more astonished that someone would lie or steal or covet than they now are when someone will not. The law of God will then be written in their hearts as the prophets foretold. (Jeremiah 31:33, Hebrews 10:16) This is an essential part of the future triumph of Christ and the deliverance of humankind in history and beyond.” Learning to practice God’s ways in the present is the best preparation for eternity.
"You shall not commit adultery.
27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
