The Spoiled Gift Lesson For August 21, 1966 Background Scripfure: Exodus 20:14; Matthew 5:27- 32: Mark 7:]4-23; John 8:3-1 ]; Phllippians 4:8. Devotional Reading: Ephesians 5:1-6. Have you ever noticed Jesus' talent for bursting our little bal- loons of pride and self-satisfac- tion? Who can honesty consider his teachings without feeling quite deflated? He has a knack for turning our great moral victories into occasions of doubt and suspi- cion of guilt. The rich young ru'ler came to him with" obvi- ous self-satisfac- tion. He lived according to'all the command- ments, wha! Rev. Althouse more did heneed to do to be insured of eternal life. Apparently he expected Jesus to commend him and assure him that he was already ~iru" But in- stead of the expected pat on the baek: Jesus replied with: ~You lack one thing... = No one can really take pride in his observance of the corn- mandments if he really under- stands them as Jesus did. For example, one need not commit murder in order to violate the purpose of ).he sixth command- ment. One may destroy or pro- fane God's gift of human life with anger and bRterness as well as physical violence. The Precious Gift The same is true of ~e pur- pose of the seventh command- ment: ~You shall not commit adultery." It too is given to pro- tect one of God's precious gifts to his children: man's sexual nature. Like all his gifts, it is a giR with a purpose behind it. He gives it to enrich a~nd elevate life. He expects man t5 use this gift according to that purpose and when man does, hislifeis enriched and blessed. If, however, he does not use this gift in accordance with God's intention, he not only displeases God, he also hurts himself and others. The precious gift then becomes the spoiled gift! The seventh commandment deals primarily with adultery, the act of sexual intercourse with someone married to another. In Deuteronomy 22 the command- ment is expanded to include fornication, any act of intercourse outside the bonds of marriage. In i other words, the Old Testament recognized marriage as the only lawful context in which men and women should employ the God- given gift of sex. It is difficult to imagine how Jesus could improve upon this. What more could he ask then that people abstain from adultery and all fornication? Yet here is where Jesus displays his talent for bursting our balloons. The Inner Fact "But I say to you that every one who looks at a woman lust- fully has already committed adultery with her in his heart". (Matthew 5:28 RSV). Theseventh commandment led some to con- centrate too much on the physical act of sexual immorality. Jesus was just as concerned, however, with the inner fact of lust. The real problem, he knew, was with the impure thoughts and attitudes that precede the immoral acts. When he defines it this way, who can escape his accusation? We may feel pretty smug because we have never violated the letter of the law, but when we consider the spirit of the law, the divine purpose behind it, there is no room left for smugness. Who is there among us who has never allowed lust to play with our DISTRIBUTOR Belt Avenue Ranson, W. Va. Phone 725.2215 thoughts? This is true even .if the lustful thoughta never result in an im- moral act. ~But in that case," you protest, ~no one is hurtP Someone, however, is hurt .... YOU! Just as hate can destroy the hater from within, so lust is a poison let loose within us. It poisons our attitudes and values. It gives ~s a very immature and selfish understanding bf G o d' s "The Pharisee, The Tax STUCK & ALGER PHARMACISTS Dial 725-2621-Charles Town, W. Va.

ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a store. house of spiritual valiies. Without strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regu- larly and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support.
