HELP KEEP YOUR SPOUSE FROM TEMPTATION

Protecting your spouse from temptation means making sure his or her sexual needs get met by you and you alone.  I have a good friend who said it this way, “If you don’t want to do his laundry, then your husband can take his clothes to the cleaners.  If you decide you don’t want to cook anymore for him, then he can go out to any number of great restaurants to eat.  But if you decide you don’t want to meet his sexual needs anymore—well, then you’ve got trouble.”

If your spouse isn’t getting his or her sexual needs met at home with you, and he or she can be tempted to go somewhere else, God call that a sin.

Don’t misunderstand what I am saying!  If your spouse sins sexually, he or she is responsible before God.  But at the same time, understand that you play a powerful role in helping your spouse to avoid yielding to temptation.  This is not intended to be a guilt trip!  It’s just the plain truth. Reality.

If you love your mate, then you’ll want to protect him from the limitless temptations that the enemy of our souls floats by him or her day after day.  Make it your priority and your goal to meet your mate’s needs in a way that would cause him or her to look nowhere else.
