Fidelity Follow-up

The following are some statements that show the need for an active/proactive pursuit of purity in a marriage, so that we can reflect the faithfulness of Christ. The statements come in a Washington Times article about the Senator Sanford crisis:

I developed a relationship with what started as a dear, dear friend from Argentina. It began very innocently, as I suspect many of these things do, in just a casual e-mail back-and-forth in advice on one's life there and advice here," he said at a news conference at the statehouse in Columbia.

"But here recently, over this last year, it developed into something much more than that," Mr. Sanford said.

Ending a bizarre episode that began with reports of a governor who had disappeared over Father's Day weekend, Mr. Sanford admitted that he had told his staff he was heading for the Appalachian Trail to recover from a bruising legislative session. He also said he had told his wife about the affair five months ago, and they were working on their marriage.

He said he had seen the woman three times in the past year, but did not explain why he went to Argentina or the status of his relationship with the woman.

"I spent five days crying in Argentina," said Mr. Sanford, who said his friendship with the unnamed woman began when he counseled her not to leave her husband for the sake of her two boys.
Guard your relationships while they are innocent! (And pray for those who have fallen, that they might see the glory of Christ.)
