General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye is currently trending on micro-blogging website, Twitter and it is not entirely for the right reason.
So here’s what happened ;
The respected clergy man took to his twitter page to recall how he told his “son” to sack his secretary because he(son) told him that he is excited to resume at work every Monday because he will get to see his secretary.
According to Adeboye, he told his son to sack his secretary because no one is worth his marriage. He went on to admonish married men and women on spending time with people who are not their spouse.
The disclosure ignited a spark of controversy as some Nigerians called him out for making an “innocent lady lose her job”.

Today, I will be focusing on the married. It is sad that many married people are still having crushes with persons apart from their spouses.
If there is any fellow aside from your spouse you are admiring unduly, you must see such a person as the devil and get rid of them immediately.
One of my sons once told me that he was always excited to resume in the office every Monday because he would get to see his secretary again. I told him to fire her immediately. Nothing and no one is worth your marriage.
What is a married woman doing on the phone with another man for countless minutes? Why would a married man be spending so much time with another man’s wife? Why would you prefer to discuss intimate issues with your “friend” of the opposite sex instead of your God-given spouse?
Oh, you may say “I am not doing anything with the fellow; we are just friend.” That is exactly where it starts from. The devil knows you are a Christian and would not fall for someone just like that.
So, he makes you become good friends with the fellow and before you know it, you would have fallen. May you not fall for any strategy of the devil in the mighty name of Jesus. If you have any friend that you talk to more than your spouse, break that friendship now.
Proverbs 5:18 has this to say:
“Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.”
Spend more time with your spouse and make him/her your confidant. Exchange compliments. The reason many people have crushes outside their marriage is mostly due to a distance between the couple.
They no longer communicate as they used to. When they talk, it is only on serious issues about the children or other family needs, instead of talking/gisting about just anything as they used to in the early days of their marriage.
They no longer go out to fun places or take walks together except they are going for family functions. If there is no distance between yourself and your spouse, no crush can come between you.
No one should be closer to you or know more about you than your spouse.
