Jesus Gets to the Heart of Divorce and Dishonesty
Scripture: Matthew 5:31–5:37
The two issues raised by Jesus in verses 31-37 are those of divorce and dishonesty. There are few topics that bring to mind emotional and relational pain more than those of divorce and dishonesty. One thing they have in common is that they are commonly accepted as solutions to complex life stress and problems. Jesus teaches that both are ineffective solutions, make the problems even worse and reveal the need for heart transfomation that only He provides.
