What he did for lust
He marries his brother’s wife (after divorcing his own).
He gets so excited by the dance of his step-daughter / niece that he promises her anything she wants and ends up executing John the Baptist.
Many of us sometimes make bad decisions in our lives because of relationships.
Sometimes we make bad decisions because of lust.
Sometimes we make bad decisions because of loneliness.
Sometimes we make immoral decisions because of misplaced deference or not wanting to disturb the status quo.
May we make all our decisions based on truth and the ways of God by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, be merciful to me - a sinner
