Financial Infidelity?

I found this article interesting. Christians believe that lying is lying is lying — it is a misrepresentation of reality, and God, as the ultimate reality / the Shakespeare to our tragicomedy lives, has not made us to be misrepresenters of reality. Because of this, things fall apart when we lie.

Yet, within a marriage, one function of which is to essentially re-enact the beautiful unity and intimacy and love that the trinity constantly expresses, lying is especially destructive. Though I knew this in my head, I hadn’t thought of it as a kind of cheating on your spouse.

May the Lord make us more like Him.
