Neither give place to the devil. Eph 4:27
Before I start today’s teaching, remember that there will be a 3 days of fasting and prayers starting from the 1st to 3rd of July. The prayers and fasting will commence with midnight live broadcast on the 1st of June by 12am. Don’t miss it.
In this series, I am teaching on seven nonsexual forms of betrayal some of which can be just as damaging as a physical affair. Here are the remaining three.
5. HAVING AN EMOTIONAL AFFAIR
Maintaining friendships outside your relationship is healthy and can actually enrich the bond you have with your partner. But be honest with yourself: If this so-called friend is someone you’re sexually attracted to and you two talk constantly, often about intimate or personal topics, then you may be veering into emotional affair territory.
If you feel inclined to hide the nature of this “friendship” from your partner, you have veered off tract in this relationship. Privacy is different from secrecy. Privacy is healthy for a relationship but patterns of secrecy are not.
Even when these emotional affairs are strictly nonphysical, they still sap the time and energy of your partner. If you’re fantasizing, having intimate talks and sharing things you should only be sharing with your primary partner or sending late night ‘just thinking of you’ flirty texts, you’re not just having an innocent friendship. You are seriously cheating.
6. KEEPING OTHER SECRETS FROM YOUR PARTNER
You might chose to withhold certain information from your partner because you want to protect them from a potentially upsetting situation ― like failing to share your medical test results because you don’t want your spouse to be concerned. Or maybe you decided to keep secrets for a more selfish reason; you know what you’re doing is wrong, and you don’t want to get busted ― like going online to flirt with strangers.
But either way, if you can’t come clean to your partner, you will gradually ruin the foundation of trust, honesty and intimacy that the relationship is built on. Being vulnerable and letting your guard down to share what is going on in your life is more important than keeping secrets and hurting yourself and the one you love.
7. DISRESPECTING OR CRITICIZING YOUR PARTNER IN FRONT OF OTHER PEOPLE
Ridiculing, criticizing or otherwise disrespecting your partner behind closed doors is hurtful, but it’s especially cruel when done in front of others. Whether it’s rolling your eyes at the way your partner tells a story or pointing out something negative about their appearance, these kinds of undermining behaviors stir up feelings of insecurity that erode the trust in your relationship.
Not feeling safe around a partner in fear that they will say something inappropriate or disrespectful in front of friends or family harms the relationship, you start feeling like you can’t be comfortable and safe around your partner. It feels like they don’t care about you enough to treat you with respect.
