It has been said that more than 80% of men dabble in some form of pornography. Every one of us has been tempted by the world around us and most of us have fallen at one time or another. I know that I have had to repent to my wife for the things that I entertained and embraced with my eyes on more than one occasion as I was growing in the Lord.
Looking lustfully at other women is more than doing something wrong. It’s adultery against your wife and your marriage. It’s not just a private sin that harms no one. It’s loving something more than you love God and your wife. It’s a sin that is painful, harmful, and destructive to any kind of loving intimacy.
Maybe it’s time to examine your life. Take note of what you do with your eyes. If you need to repent, do so. Ask the Lord to heal you and your desires, bringing them into line with His will. Embrace the beauty in the bride He has given you, even if you haven’t done so in a long time. Find Christ’s idea of beauty in her. Ask Him to let you see your wife as He sees her. It’s never too late to change!
