Former professional baseball and football player Bo Jackson was once asked how he avoided the sexual temptations that seem to plague professional athletes. He responded that there were a couple of reasons why he didn’t pay any attention to the women who pursued him. First, he wouldn’t want any woman who chased after a married man. Second, his wife knew how to use a gun!
There are all sorts of good reasons for a husband to remain faithful to his wife. The most important reason is that God commands it.
“You shall not commit adultery.”—Exodus 20:14.
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”–Ephesians 5:25.
