Lust- One Of The Seven Deadly Sins

Updated on February 12, 2012

But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matthew 5:28

In today's world with the media, magazines and Internet we have become desensitized to pictures flashing before our eyes. The intelligence behind advertising is beyond our comprehension. Seeds get planted in our minds, and then water gets added, these lust seeds get roots and begin to grow. We must be so very careful. When I was young, these advertisments caused some insecuritis in me. I thought that I should look like that too. Satan is the top advertising company. We must be careful what we expose our eyes to.

The bible says we will give an account for our actions. We will answer to God. When most of us read the scripture above we think of men lusting after women. Well, I think a lot of women should know that the way we dress can cause men to lust and we will also give an account for these actions as well.

We all may need a reminder that we can have victory in Jesus.

Here is a little song from Sunday School

O be careful little eyes what you see

O be careful little eyes what you see

O be careful little eyes what you see

There's a Father up above

And He's looking down in love

So, be careful little eyes what you see



O be careful little ears what you hear

O be careful little ears what you hear

There's a Father up above

And He's looking down in love

So, be careful little ears what you hear



O be careful little hands what you do

O be careful little hands what you do

There's a Father up above

And He's looking down in love

So, be careful little hands what you do



O be careful little feet where you go

O be careful little feet where you go

There's a Father up above

And He's looking down in love

So, be careful little feet where you go



O be careful little mouth what you say

O be careful little mouth what you say

There's a Father up above

And He's looking down in love

So, be careful little mouth what you say

      You are so right, women do lust and we are no less guilty. I didn't mean to come across as pointing the finger to only men. If it sounded like that sorry guys. Thanks Valerie.

      sky, don't leave out the fact that women also lust, too. When we wear the sexy clothes it is in order to attract the men, and our motives aren't all that good either. Women usually demonstrate their bad motives differently, but we are far from really being passive about it. Women are sneakier about such things than men, but no less guilty. (: v

      Sky321, Fantastic Hub. I sometimes wonder though if God and Jesus ever took into consideration the weakness of a man's mind, when most men see women as candy or icecream, something to be had and savoured first,rather than adored and cherished. I also wonder if women take into consideration the fact that they become more desirable by the way the dress, apply their makeup and present themselves in public or private.

      Most men are extremely weak and vulnerable in this area,especially the younger men, and many men figure that,"If it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck, and quacks, like a duck, it must be a duck."

      Brother Dave.

      Great Hub and as a man could not agree more, images which are allowed into the mind stay put, but there is victory as well in the Father without whom we are helpless.

      Blessings and Hugs
