It's a slow fade when you give yourself away
It's a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It's a slow fade, it's a slow fade
(Slow Fade ~Casting Crowns)
I am going to come right out with it and tell you, I do not believe, if you are married, that it is wise to be friends with the opposite sex unless they are your siblings. I realize there will be some disagreement with that statement and that is ok. I hope you will read on however.
Now I am not talking about being friends with couples who you invite to dinner and play monopoly with every Friday night. I am talking about intimate relationships. The sort where you call your friend just to chat, the kind of friend you go out for coffee with just the 2 of you, the friend you call in a crisis should be the same gender as you.
Here's why. Rarely do you set out to sin. You might even look at your friend and think "Romance? Not in a million years."
But there is one who is out there. One who can subtly pull at your heartstrings. One who can influence your thoughts and feelings.
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter5:8
There it is! Do not let Satan get a foothold in your life, in your marriage.
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. Proverbs 4:23
