The Cost of Being UnFaithful

Proverbs 23:7

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…

Being unfaithful doesn’t just happen one day out of the clear blue. You don’t wake up and think instead of a round of golf, I might just cheat today. No, it comes from deep, selfish, lustful, and continuous thoughts of what if? And, why not?

As a man/woman thinks in his/her heart…

If you are debating whether to be faithful or not in your marriage, consider these short lists of pros and cons.

PROS

…a lasting marriage
…happy children
…contentment
…peace of mind
…success
…guiltless
…respect
…blessings
…clear conscience
…happiness
…fulfillment
…honor
…obedience to God

CONS

…divorce
…broken home
…depression
…troubled children
…dysfunction
…emptiness
…rebuke
…guilt
…restlessness
…discontent
…failure
…no respect
…dishonor
…disobedience to God

Being unfaithful is selfishness at its finest and it causes much pain, sadness, resentment, and heartache. Precious children become pawns and often they feel lost, insure, and unsafe. Unfaithfulness is total disregard for the blessings you were given by God.

We all have choices to make. Yes, we are human and we make wrong decisions. But we do need to think things through thoroughly and with godly insight. Being unfaithful is cruel. It leaves lasting scars on the most innocent of hearts. Hearts that love you. And it’s a guilt you will carry until death.

What is the cost of being unfaithful? The cost is massive. You very well could lose your marriage, your reputation, and the hearts of your children. And in the long run, it could cost you Heaven.

Faithful. Be that person. ♥️

  1. I struggled with porn for a long time! Though I haven’t willingly looked or watched any in years, it still replays in my mind.

    A lot of people don’t think it’s adultery or fornication. But it certainly is. Nobody can look at it and not place themselves in that situation. And it does hurt people. It affects how a man views women, vice versa.

    You don’t even have to touch someone else to be unfaithful.
