Read: Job 31:1-4

In today’s technological era, there is a potential danger of spending hours alone in front of a computer with easy access to inappropriate images. There are people who put post-it notes onto computer monitors with the verse Job 31:1, which says, “I have made a covenant with my eyes.” The verse continues, “Why then should I look upon a young woman?” Job had promised himself to stay free of lust. He said, “Does [God] not see my ways, and count all my steps?” (v.4). The Bible assures us that God does (Heb. 4:13), and that we are accountable to Him. This is why believers must “abstain from sexual immorality” (1 Thess. 4:3).

Some may want to debate the boundaries of morality in the modern times. Despite this, Jesus said, “Whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matt. 5:28). If you have made a covenant with your eyes, consider how Scripture might help you keep it. Post a verse on your computer screen, television, dashboard of your car. Always remember, “God did not call us to uncleanness but in holiness” (1 Thess. 4:7).
