For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

-Mark 8:36, KJV

Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

-I Peter 2:11-12, KJV

Injustices are real and plentiful when dealing with an unfaithful spouse.

However, as God’s dear people, I want to remind us to keep perspective:

Even if the cheater gains the whole “world,” he will forfeit his own soul as long as he refuses to repent (e.g. I Cor. 6:9).

Our experience in this world may be full of experiences of injustice, this was true of God’s prophets–just read Hebrews 11. However, we are looking ahead to our home. This is a home where Justice and Goodness reign supreme.

A home where Jesus wipes away every tear.

A home where there is no more sorrow or pain.

A home where fear is banished by the Presence of Pure Love.

This is only a temporary home. The next one is much, much better!

God promises.

  1. Thank you so much for your daily ministry.
    I had a dear friend pass away this past week and her local memorial was Sunday afternoon. She was 75 years old and had never married or had children, but she was one of the few who didn’t judge my pain of betrayal and how I was dealing with it. In fact she would call and say are you “Ok”. Followed by an invitation to spend some time horseback riding. Two hip replacements and she could ride all day. She felt that most of the world’s problems could be solved in the saddle. She never quoted scripture to me or at me, but she would point out every tree and flower by name and be in awe of its creation. I will miss her until I see her again.
    I have found through this three year process of divorcing my adulterous husband that I really didn’t have very many good friends or family. God amazingly sent me support in the most unlikely areas of my life. I am thankful that this is my temporary home. That my eternity is in God’s hands as well as who I need to encourage me through the roughest times.

  2. Thank you DM for your dedication to the brokenhearted. I loved that song and it is a great reminder “this is a temporary home”, tears will be wiped away, pain, sorrow, fear GONE. Remembering we will be safe in HIS HANDS!

    Rhonda, I agree about the friends and family that leave us too. Its all such a hell to go through. 31 years I was married, everyday I put one foot in front of the other and trust God with my life. Somedays I fail other days Im good, its such a steep climb to peace in this “temporary home”.
