My coffee buddies asked me this question the other day while we were talking about man fooling around and when one of the guys suddenly said this to the rest of us," We man are bound to fall sometimes in our lives." then he digressed and asked me this, " Eugene will you ever cheat on your wife?" and he demanded an answer from me.
I told the guys, "Seriously i don't know but i will let the love i have for my wife to overrule my sometimes selfish thoughts and desires" then they jeered," how sioh lah,( nonsense) eugene, wait till you meet one, then you know"
And that reminded me of one incident many many years when it was so close for me to hooking up an illicit relationship, it was so subtle and so fast, lunches, happy hours and nice chemistry, you thought nothing else but suddenly........so close. ( did i tell my lovely wife about this, i reckon i did)
I remember a conversation i had with my church Elder, i really learnt a lot from this brother of mine when he shared this to me, " Eugene, we are man, we must constantly remind ourselves of our weaknesses, selfish thoughts, desires and lustful thinking, lest we fall"
And he share this with me that he would never counsel any lady from the church without the presence of his wife and to me that was the great lesson good enough for me to remember.And fo
It is easy to know of our own weaknesses but it takes a lot of guts not to succumb to them.
Happy Friday folks..... Build that love on a strong foundation and actions speak louder than words.
P/S : Love conquers all but sometimes lust stands in the way, therefore build that love
