More Than Just A Command

Most people know the content of Exodus 20:14 – “Thou shalt not commit adultery.”  While this is true and is surely sufficient reason to avoid adultery, the scripture has more to say about the subject.

Proverbs 6: 32-33 for example tells us the nature of the person committing adultery as well as some of the grave results.

But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.

Often we don’t get all of the why behind God’s commands, but in this case God gives us a little more than just the command.  All the more reason to love and trust him more.
