If you are on a path toward adultery, consider the following wise saying:
Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding; He who does so destroys his own soul. Wounds and dishonor will he get, and his reproach will not be wiped away. Proverbs 6:32-33
This tells you that if you go ahead with your plan:
• You are being stupid. That’s what it means to “lack understanding.”
• You are going to self-destruct. Your personal and family life will blow up in your face. Do you really want to “destroy your own soul?”
• You will have a little pleasure and a lot of pain and shame. Along with whatever else you get, you will “get wounds and dishonor.”
• You will bear a mark for the rest of your life. Yes, God forgives, and even a betrayed spouse and children may forgive, but you and others will know what you did. There will be a “reproach that will not be wiped away.”
I think the Lord prompted me to post these thoughts from when I read Proverbs 6 last week. Maybe it has caught the attention of someone who needed it. Stop before you go any further. There is help and hope. Talk to God, and talk to a pastor or friend. Don’t be a fool. Don’t hurt yourself and others. Receive grace. Be wise. Stay true.
