Whenever we talk about unfaithfulness we're quick to think of an extramarital relationship.
Well, with that in mind , let's bring it to the spiritual realm. Let's look at the case of King Saul.
'Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance.' 1 Chronicles 10:13.
Saul betrayed God by consulting a medium. That's exactly what some youths do to God. They confess their love for Him in church but elsewhere they betray Him with a friend, boyfriend/girlfriend, music, lies, deceit, rebellion, MySpace, Facebook, cell phone, etc.
Yes, that's what they do. Don't be surprised if I say so. I've seen cases where youths would leave the YPG meeting right in the middle of an important message in order to answer their phone. Others have enough time to be by the computer talking to friends for hours but don't have time to read the Bible.
Let me give you a more clear example. Let's say you've just arrived at home after a long day at school. You are tired, you feel drained. All you want to do is to lay down and sleep all the way through to the next day, if you could. But you can't because you've got to revise or do some homework for the next day.
In spite of the tiredness you push yourself for you know you need the grades to pass. Then you end up going to sleep very late that day, knowing that you have to wake up by 7am and leave the house by 7.30am next day, otherwise the school won't allow you in. So, what do you do? Decide to wake up later than usual because you went to bed late? No, you don't do that. You wake up right on time no matter what. Why? Simply because the school's principal, teachers and your parents will all be on your case, not to mention the risk you're taking in failing your tests.
My question is: why do they do that for grades but not for God? Why do they have to arrive late in church? Why is it that they are more FAITHFUL to their career than to God?
