We live in a day and age when we depend upon magistrates and judges to tell us what is right and wrong. And for wrongs done against us, many want money or prison time as compensation. Debts and transgressions are not forgiven without payment in full. Rather than solving our problems by ourselves we need help from lawyers. It seems that we are living in a day and age like the one Jesus lived in – we no longer know how to judge what is right because we have stopped loving each other. The root of this problem appears to come from our lack of love for our children and our families. Many think that adultery is love, but in actuality it is about selfishness rather than love. For this reason, it is wrong to hold our children accountable for their sins while we praise the adulterers for their unloving choices.
Jesus said, “Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern the time? Yes, and why, even of yourselves judge ye not what is right? When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer deliver thee into prison. I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.”(Luke 12:56-59)
