Be Careful When You Think You're Standing

Powerful Pastor who baptized 100 people in the last three weeks had to resign this Sunday after an affair with one of his staff.

I don't know how many times it has to happen before we are finally convinced that we are vulnerable and susceptible and weak and may be next.

Here's my tips after 26 years of marriage and 20 years of ministry:

1. My wife is a 10 and the rest of you are a 1/2. Sorry!

2. I don't have best friends that are girls. Not fair... tough!

3. I don't get my emotional needs met by women... if I need to be 'stroked', it's gonna be by a man.

4. I am next! If I really believe that... I won't be.

God said, "Be careful when you think you're standing, lest you fall."

He wasn't joking.

That's exactly what we were talking about 3 days ago! The devil is "knocking off" some pretty big folks! Why should this small-fry think he isn't vulnerable?! Gotta keep that guard up. As soon as it comes down, the punch is coming!

Ephesians 5:25-30 "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church & gave Himself up for her; that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she should be holy & blameless. So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, because we are members of His body."
