    Verse 4: Jehovah God set the standard for morality and marriage. This is to be a permanent bond between man and woman.

    2 Corinthians 3:3, the Holy Spirit writes not on tablets of stone but on the fleshy tablets of our hearts. For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death.
  • Stargazer
    Jesus' ministry was short upon the earth but leaves for us an eternal legacy, adapting the old and including the new. Keep the commandments which Moses hath chiseled upon the rock and which are to be found in the Ark of the covenant. But also sell what thou has that interferes with loving God more than yourself. The cares of this world are mere
    moments, while God's love is eternal. We choose.

    V21_ Jesus is encouraging people to be industrious, sell your products/services, to enable themselves to have enough money to help the poor after the needs of their family are met. Follow Jesus is to lead a Christian life that includes charity to those in need. Money in excess, being Rich, leads to vanity and false thinking of being "better than" someone that has less money.
