Here are wisdom's instructions to we who are married: "Drink waters out of your own cistern [of a pure marriage relationship], and fresh running waters out of your own well" (Prov. 5:15 AMP).

We are to fully enjoy our relationship with our own spouse.

That scripture is also God's answer to AIDS. The world has no answer to AIDS, but wisdom does: Drink waters out of your own cistern.

The Bible goes on to say, "Let your fountain [of human life] be blessed [with the rewards of fidelity], and rejoice in the wife of your youth" (v. 18 AMP).

According to this scripture, God has reserved great rewards for those who "drink from their own cistern." And one of those rewards is finding joy in the person they married!

God has a very good reason for telling us to avoid every temptation to commit adultery. He doesn't want us to be like the adulterer: "His own iniquities shall ensnare the wicked man, and he shall be held with the cords of his sin. He will die for lack of discipline and instruction, and in the greatness of his folly he will go astray and be lost" (Prov. 22-23 AMP).

God wants us to be free and to be delivered. He instituted the marriage covenant so that through it we might find joy, as we remain faithful to our spouse.

God created the family - it's His own design. And for you who have no family, God Himself has placed you in His. Here is a scripture to bless you: "God places the solitary in families and gives the desolate a home in which to dwell..." (Ps. 68:6 AMP).

God wanted a family around Him, so He created man and woman and told them to be fruitful and multiply - He said He will bless our seed - our family. God has purposed that one man and one woman come together in marriage and produce sons and daughters to surround them all of their days. And "the gift goes on" - grandchildren, great-grandchildren.

There is no end to blessing in the families of God. Each generation should be stronger. There is no blessing greater than a family. Faithfulness to the marriage covenant keeps the family intact.

Wisdom for Today
Don't feed your mind (through television, movies, books, etc.) on the world's message that "adultery is no big deal." Don't even toy around with the thought of adultery. Make the decision to give honor to the one you married by staying faithful.
