An Adulterous Situation

An Adulterous Situation


I knew of a couple, involved in an adulterous situation.

A person involved, claimed that he was a Christian!


He told others that he wanted to tell her about the Lord…

But this involvement in sin, he couldn’t well “afford!”


A “casual” encounter led to the marriage’s destruction.

Her husband was so hurt, he could hardly “function.”


How could this man think there’s “nothing wrong with it.”

“It must be fine.”  He thought.  “everyone’s doing it!”


Jesus has come, that we might have freedom from within!

Going to church, doesn’t give us a “license to sin!”


God gave us marriage, as a holy and divine covenant!

He gave us his word, so that our lives can be abundant!


May this be a stern warning to one and all!

That which may look attractive, will cause us to fall!


If there’s something more from marriage that you desire…

Be careful!  Your deep passions will burn like a fire!


May I encourage you to pray and seek the Lord above!

And ask him to build your marriage on his love!


Only he can restore everything the enemy has taken!

He’ll be with you, when you may feel totally forsaken!


Adultery is like a cancer cell…  That will eventually destroy!

It’ll rob you of  the many blessings,

that God wants you to enjoy!


What God has joined as one... 

May there be no separation!

But a heart of unselfishness,

and a renewed dedication!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
