The Seventh Commandment – For Young Children

THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT
“Thou shalt not commit adultery”

means —

that we should not bring impure thoughts and behavior to our marriage. When a man and woman marry, they make a promise to love and honor each other. If one of them breaks that promise, by going to someone else for the kind of love and affection they should be getting only from their marriage partner, then it might be said that they are “committing adultery.” In the same way, we also do not let impure thoughts muddy the understanding of ourselves as the “image and likeness” of God.

 

THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT
“Thou shalt not commit adultery”

helps us —

to keep our families together and to draw us closer to God. Adultery poisons the marriage relationship. Everyone suffers in some way. But think how happy a family would be if
everyone was trusted to be loyal to the family. In the same way, we must be true and
loyal to ourselves and to God. We must not look for happiness outside of our relationship with God, good. Learning to turn away from wrong behavior while young, helps us gain the self-discipline which will protect us from committing adultery. This will keep our lives pure and in obedience to God.
