Many people justify themselves, believing the Lord approves what they are doing because He allows them to do it. However, that is not the way to think.
When the Pharisees questioned Jesus on divorce, wondering why Moses allowed it, the Lord said,
“Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so” (Matthew 19:8).
Be careful in what you do with the Scriptures.
