It’s no secret. Lust and desire are taking out men left and right.
Many men have wrestled with the temptation and sin of lust, and while many know how to handle the feeling in a healthy way, there are others that are still struggling. Whether it is an addiction to pornography, desire to commit adultery, or an emotional affair, lust opens the door for allowing the enemy to ruin our relationships and families.
Acting on temptations makes men more vulnerable to divorce, depression, and overwhelming guilt, leaving them unable to live their life freely for God. If men do not take necessary precautions and stay focused on their goals, then they will leave themselves open to sexual sin. Men need to develop support systems that help to protect them. Even the kindest and sweetest of guys can fall victim if they are not careful.
Men have to work diligently to create an environment that lessens the temptation around them. Many are setting themselves up for failure and don’t even know it. Learn the ways that even the “good guys” can fall for feelings of lust and how they can avoid those traps.
