Why Do People Cheat?

People cheat because they have no identity.

They do not know who they are, therefore, do not know what they need or want. They do not know their inmost self. They think they know themselves on the surface, but even this knowledge is scarce.

A grand percentage of people seek a person who is attractive, successful, and someone they can have great sex with. But, what happens when that person does not satisfy them emotionally?

They cheat.

Emotional satisfaction cannot be found in a person. It can only be found in God. We where made in the image of God, which means we are eternal. God set eternity in the human heart; there will always be a void unless occupied by God himself.

Emotions are like a universe in the human heart, immense, and forever overflowing in an open space; like an ocean, deep, with drowning waters. Our emotions cannot be tamed and our heart cannot be filled with anything that is earthly. Eternity can only be filled with eternity. Who else other than ourselves is eternal, if not God who has created eternity.

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. Ecclesiastics 3:11

If we cannot see the entire scope of God’s work from beginning to end, then let’s rejoice in Him who is the creator of all things! Seeking these things will never bring satisfaction.

Let your heart be filled with His presence. Be complete in God. Find yourself in Him who is all satisfying.
