I’m sure you’ve heard warnings agains sexual promiscuity and impurity from many people, including God. At least, I hope you have. But why is this kind of behavior bad?
Because, by engaging in sexual activity with someone when it is outside of marriage, you are defiling an act that God reserved for a specific setting. You are subjecting your body and your mind to something that you are not ready for yet mentally or spiritually. And you are connecting yourself FOR LIFE to the person that you do this with. These are just a few reasons, mind you. And being emotionally promiscuous is wrong, for all the same reasons, and more.
Wait. Huh? What’s emotional promiscuity? How can you be promiscuous with feelings? What in the world am I talking about?
Emotional promiscuity is letting someone in emotionally when you are not mentally or spiritually prepared (sound familiar?). This can include things like dating at a young age when you are not prepared for marriage, disclosing personal issues to someone you don’t know personally online, and treating friends as “more than friends” when you are not dating or shouldn’t be.
Why, specifically are these bad? What can we do to keep ourselves from feeling like these things are okay, or even a necessity? It is very important to know what constitutes as emotional promiscuity, and even more important to know how to guard your heart against it and put that knowledge into action.
I will post part 2 tomorrow night. I plan to do a post on Emotional Promiscuity every day until Friday, so keep checking for more!
