Be Faithful to Your Wife
Let your fountain be blessed,
and rejoice with the wife of your youth. - Proverbs 5:18
Today, we have a problem with faithfulness in marriage. So many married people are broken because of a husband or wife who has been unfaithful to them. Many might excuse their infidelity as a point of weakness. Yet, I believe their unfaithfulness is a result of the lust of their flesh. It is a seductive work––flirting with the secretary, playing little games, writing little notes, going to lunch, and, then you both end up in bed together.
A husband needs to be faithful to his wife. He should not go and be with anyone else, but stay faithful to her. His wife belongs to him and his love should be only for her––nobody else. He should not share his sexuality, by spreading what God has given him as an intimate gift only between him and his wife, with another person:
As a loving deer and a graceful doe, let her [your wife]breasts satisfy you at all times; and always be enraptured with her love. For why should you, my son, be enraptured by an immoral woman, and be embraced in the arms of a seductress? (Proverbs 5:19-20)
It is a blessing to have a wife. It is in marriage where real love is shown. The husband and wife should be in unity, and look for sexual pleasure only with each other. A husband is to be enraptured, which means: “intoxicated” with his wife’s love. It is your wife who will have your children. Imagine, it is such a joy to have children.
The model for marriage is “Founded on pure love and
cemented in mutual esteem."
~Charles H. Spurgeon~
