We’ve heard a lot of sad stories regarding infidelity in married couples. Trust is a huge deal to me and I can’t help but be somewhat affected by such stories, especially when they happen to people I know. When King and I talk about it, here’s how the conversation goes.
KING: Babe, I will never do that to you.
ME: How sure are you?
KING: Because I love God.
ME: Good answer!
I know that King’s love for God or his relationship with Him is no guarantee that he will not fall, because he is merely human. But it’s certainly more reassuring than hearing him tell me that he loves me. I know he loves me and is committed to me, but I believe that his love for and commitment to God is deeper. I don’t need him to fear my wrath because God’s wrath far outweighs mine. Not discounting the need for me to be vigilant and to do my part as a good wife, him having the fear of the Lord should be enough to keep him away from trouble. 🙂
