This post dropped into my heart with much soberness, as I had a chat with the girls during a down time.
We got talking about a woman who suffered with her hubs, built a life with him but had no children. Then her hubs went out and had children by other women. She in turn, began retaliating by doing lots of evil stuffs…so I heard.
Looking deep into the conversation, I admitted that no woman wants a rival. But once a misdeed is done, it is done. If that woman doesn’t take grace to forgive her husband, she would commit lots of atrocities and in the process offend God.
Before I knew it , the conversation drifted to the cheating attitude of men. A colleague then made a statement that sounds like “all men were created to cheat. It’s in their nature… Even the Christian ones”.
Then I began to ponder on these words.
We have been plagued so much with infidelity from men, and it seems like there are no men of virtue again. In all sincerity, I think this statement is half true. Even christian men are heavily involved in infidelity. But I do not believe this is the will of God for men.
Almost everywhere, we see men, single and married, church goers, church workers as well pastors committing sexual immorality.
Christian brothers are convincing their fiancee to engage in premarital sex, pastors trying to have sex with members.
I had a personal experience with a married church brother. At that time, his wife’s shop was opposite my mum’s shop. Ironically, I was so friendly and quite close to the wife. This man would leave his wife’s shop, possibly pretending to buy something from our place and he would be asking me out. I was not even 18 at that time!!!
My colleague told me of a pastor in school (he was married). He preached often against girls following married men. The same pastor would ask her out and invite her to the hotel.
All these stories breaks my heart because people have no faith in men again. Wives now see it as a norm , young girls expect it in marriage, even parents excuse it away by saying “men will always be men”.
I can’t help but ask this question…
Where are the mighty men of virtue? Are there no men who hold the word of God in high esteem?
I sincerely believe that there are still chaste men and those who are still faithful to their wives. When Elijah lamented to God about being the only servant left, God told him that “I have 7,000 men who have not bowed their knees to Baal”.
Men of virtues, it is time to rise up and speak against immorality. Teach and show this generation and the next, that God demands that men be holy in body and spirit. It is not a norm to be slutty. The Lord forbids immorality for both males and females.
