Mark 6:19 we find a law ignored and a law obeyed. Herodias held it against John the Baptist because he had come to Herod and said, it's not lawful for you to have your brother Philip's wife. So she held it against him. Verse 17 and wanting to kill him, but she could not. Why couldn't she? Why couldn't she kill... Or why couldn't she kill John The baptist? Because Herod said no, she obeyed the law of the king. She obeyed the law of her husband, but she was more than willing to ignore the law of God. We need to understand that God's laws ought to always take precedence in our lives, no matter who else's laws we ever obey.
