Suppose you sneaked out once in a while and spend your time elsewhere. Not at your home, your woman, or man, but in the arms of another woman, or man. Do you not think that your vile actions will provoke your partner to anger, envy or jealousy?
When you spend your precious time eldewhere you show your partner, where your heart is, and where you stand in your relationship with them. A man that loves his woman will crave the attention of his woman, and will do anything to be in her arms, and to please her. A man that choses to spend his time, and energy elsewhere, shows his lack of love, and care for his woman, through his actions.
Or vice versa
When we are divided in our interests with God and the world, we draw a line in the sand and let him know where we stand in our relationship with him.
” You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever chooses to be a friend of the world has declared himself to be an enemy of God.”
Connection with the world, as well as enticement with worldly pleasures, and treasures, repells God, and reveals our relationship with him.
Do not be enticed with what’s on the other side, but rather draw yourself to Christ, to repell the world.
As we draw closer to God we become more like him, and less like the world, rejecting all that displeases him, and dishonors him.
The lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life is an enemy of God. Watch out so that you are not tempted or drawn away by its treasures.
Whoever chooses to be a friend of God rejects all that displeases him, and dishonors him.
Choose today, whom you will serve, you cannot serve God, and the devil.
I hope you have been encouraged to seek out that which will better you, give you a hope, and a future.
