Sin is delicious. I wish it weren’t so, but it is.
I work with so many women who get caught up in things they never dreamed would hook them.
Lies and deceptions.
Overspending and debt.
When I met with *Carolyn, she couldn’t even look up at me, but finally, she took a deep breath and started.
“I’m having an affair with a married man. We met at work and over the course of conversation and cocktails and compliments, I found myself taken in by him. At first, it was just so nice to be noticed. Not just for the way I look but for my brain and my ideas. He listened to my dreams and my problems. He helped me get promoted.
Now here I am. Three years into a relationship with a married man who will never divorce his wife. Hiding the truth from my family and friends, swallowing the pain and guilt, pretending everything is great. I’ve tried to break it off, but I keep going back.”
I stared at her. Why would a beautiful, educated woman get into this mess?
Because sin is delicious.
