Mothers that have committed adultery must make decisions. In many different circumstances, she will have to decide whether her children with her first husband or her children with her second husband come first. Mary, Jesus’ mother who never committed adultery, is a great example for women to follow. She never abandoned her first born son, Jesus, for Joseph’s children. She stayed with all of her children until they were mature enough to live without her, but Jesus was first in her life. John 19:26-27, “When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, “Woman, behold thy son!” Then saith he to the disciple, “Behold thy mother!” And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.” Mary did not stay with the children that she had with Joseph after Jesus died on the cross. She stayed with Jesus indirectly through John, the disciple that he loved. (John’s mother may have died or she may have abandoned him for the children that she had with another man, I do not know.) A woman’s devotion must always be to the children of her first husband and not to the children of any other man. A man is never supposed to marry a divorced woman and if he does, his children with the divorced woman are his responsibility to support. Women must not give everything that they have to their second husband and his children with her. But remember that our laws around the world are set up for the benefit of the second family and to ensure that the children of the adulterous marriage do indeed become the primary heirs. Decisions…decisions? Jesus came for the “first family”. #Save the first family!
