Fidelity in Marriage

Our readings for class this week were about fidelity in marriage. I was so impressed with the thought that came from Gardner's talk and insight when he quoted President Kimball. "thought is the father of an act. No 
man ever committed murder who did not first become angry. No one ever committed 
adultery without a preceding immoral thought. The thief did not steal except he first 
coveted that which was his neighbor's.” It is important to remember "For as [a man] 
thinketh in his heart, so is he . . . (Proverbs 23:7).”  That is why we are told to be of one HEART and one MIND.To be faithfully emotional to one's spouse requires that your mind is only focused on them and pleasing and serving them first. Positive thought and active results in faithful and understood boundaries in a marriage. I am so grateful to know that it is through fidelity to our spouse that greater things can be accomplished and deeper love can be expressed.
