When a man falls into sexual sin- when he is outside of God’s plan for sexual purity- both he and his family are exposed. Is that fair? Well, God’s ways are not man’s ways. If there was no reward for doing right, what would motivate a man to avoid wrong?

Sow and reap
Look at your life as a long continuum of sowing and reaping. Regardless of the source of sin’s consequences (God’s just punishment or our poor decisions), there is a price to pay for sin. Sin always hurts more than we imagined. God operates with perfect justice, but He is also merciful. A good earthly father is merciful and patient, to an extent, while his child learns right from wrong.
