Are you attracted to your neighbor’s spouse?
- Her marriage is in a shambles.
- Divorce is probable.
- The wife shares how she has been wronged, most likely so.
- She is playful.
- You desire her.
- Her eyes have bewitched you.
A case in point: Involved in a wife’s betrayal: The third-party man feels a myriad of negative emotions starting with shame (Proverbs 6:33, NIV).
However, it may not happen immediately.
Day by day, month by month, adding up to years, negative emotions from adultery harm the heart.
How could this have begun?
Did pornography possibly caused the lust to develop?
Word of caution: Protect Your Heart, Because You Are Worth It.
Adultery robs the soul.
Proverbs 6:24 & 25 NIV
24 …keeping you from your neighbor’s wife, from the smooth talk of a wayward woman.
25 Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes.
P.S. This scenario could also apply to a woman attracted to another woman’s husband.
