1 Corinthians 7:1-5
This week I had someone contact me and ask me to pray for a lady with two children whose husband deceived her and left her. He told the family that they were moving for his job. They sold their home, packed all of their belongings, moved in with her parents until their new home was ready. He left and called a few days later to tell her he was not coming back.
My heart fell when I heard their story. How could someone be so cruel and calculated to rip a mother and children from their home only to leave? Stories like this one are common these days. Everything from renewing old friendships on facebook to just growing apart dot not just our world but our churches as well. That is why I felt so compelled to choose this scripture. When you say, “I do,” to your spouse it is also “I do,” to God’s plan for your life and marriage. It is saying no to any physical or emotional relationship with anyone who is not your husband. Here are some guidelines that can affair proof your marriage if both spouses follow them.
*Do not text, call for social reasons, or chat on a computer with anyone who is not your spouse. If your business compels you to speak to someone of the opposite sex, keep it business and hang up when business is complete.
* Allow your spouse to have access to your phone and computer. Accountability is a good deterrent.
* Do not get into a vehicle alone with a person of the opposite sex.
*Do not go into a house or out to eat alone with someone who is not your spouse.
* Maintain a healthy physical relationship with your spouse.
Please share these easy steps with your mate. Talk about them and make a commitment to each other to stay pure in your marriage.
