Over and over and over again, the Bible speaks of family faithfulness. Friend, if you are not faithful at home, you can’t be faithful anywhere else. Simply put: The religion that doesn’t begin at home, doesn’t begin at all.
“Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?” (Proverbs 20:6). Husbands need to be faithful to their wives. They need to be morally faithful and sexually faithful. There is no greater mark of unfaithfulness than adultery.
If you are a man, I hope you have chosen a wife, and that you are faithful to her. And when I talk about faithfulness, I don’t mean just physically faithful. Many a man is unfaithful to his wife because he is married to his job. Or he has a love affair with sports. Or he has loves money more than his mate.
The Marines have a motto: Semper fidelis – always faithful. How that needs to be true in our hearts, and in our lives!
