General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has advised married people to get close to their spouse and cut off from distractions.
In a message on Twitter on Wednesday, the cleric began by saying he asked one of his sons to sack his secretary whom he was seemingly crushing on.
“One of my sons once told me that he was always excited to resume in the office every Monday because he would get to see his secretary again. I told him to fire her immediately. Nothing and no one is worth your marriage,” he said.
“If there is any fellow aside from your spouse you are admiring unduly, you must see such a person as the devil and get rid of them immediately.”
The RCCG leader encouraged couples to spend more time with their partners and make them their confidants, adding that the reason many people have ‘crushes’ outside their marriage is due to distance between the couple.
“They no longer communicate as they used to. When they talk, it is only on serious issues about the children or other family needs, instead of talking/gisting about just anything as they used to in the early days of their marriage,” he said.
Adeboye concluded his message by saying: “No one should be closer to you or know more about you than your spouse.”
