Our men are bombarded daily with temptations to lust. They drive down the freeway and there is a billboard featuring a sexy woman. They go to work and encounter a female co-worker showing too much cleavage. It seems like there is no safe place to avoid the temptation to lust!
However, your home could be one of those safe places, especially if you choose to avoid watching TV shows that feature scantily-clad women! Personally, I would love to watch Dancing With The Stars. I so enjoy watching a dancing novice grow into a fabulous dancer in just a few weeks. But I know that watching that show with my husband will likely cause a huge challenge for him regarding lust. So, I choose not to watch that program. The same thing is true for many other shows. We apply the same rule of thumb to the movies we watch at the theater. I check beforehand to see if a movie features sexual scenes or partial nudity. We don’t attend those movies.
Are you helping your husband avoid sexual temptation through your choices of media? 1 Corinthians 10:32 says “Do not cause anyone to stumble“. Are you allowing things into your home that could cause your husband to stumble? For instance, I called Victoria’s Secret many years ago and asked them to stop sending their catalog to our home. That magazine is soft porn to men and boys! Should you make similar changes at your home?
