Indifference is a word that kills affection; itís a low value of others. It causes one to distrust, and it always leads to the negative side of life. It also builds fear to where we are doubting who we are and what we are? We begin to doubt others, canít trust no one. We ask God who He is? So we alienate ourselves from God, then one another. It is impossible to love God, while we alienate ourselves from others. God Loves the World we are to Love our neighbors as we do ourselves. We chose to become indifferent to God and one another, or even to things; even through experience it tells us we shouldnít. We have got to work overtime to build trust in the world we are living in, and that is having confidence in others and their abilities.

Affection is also intimacy. Two becoming one Ephesians 5:30-32 (NKJV)  30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. 31 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." 32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church".

Because of this man is able to submit to God as Husband, and the wife submit to the husband. Man or the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the Church and He is the savior of the body; the wife. Not Lording, or dictating ,but caring. Children are to submit to parents by obeying them. There is no greater love with intimacy that husband and wife having children, becoming family. Marriage becomes the testing grounds for all other relationships on planet earth. That is where we get the term as our families goes, so goes the nation.

We have an obligation to be intimate to those we are married to. 1st to God, husbands and then wives, but it must stop their, for if we become intimate with all men, or women, we become defiled and have no morals whatsoever. Then any thing goes and we think it is ok for its love. That is what is going on in todayís society, men marrying men and women marrying women. No wonder we are confused, we have no moral guide lines.

Webster defines intimacy as 1. The condition of being intimate. 2. An instance of being intimate. 3. Often plural, illicit sexual intercourse. So we have one wife one husband, very intimate. We can have close associations with one another out side of marriage, but not a sexual intercourse. Intimacy as far as man goes is characterized by informality and privacy, very personal, private and secret with in the marriage covenant. It does not harm to either party but builds up and gives confidence to all involved.

When we read 1 Corinthians 13 we understand what all this affection does to us as mankind. This love, affection is what makes us, or what kills us as mankind. This affection, intimacy leads us to acceptance of others regardless of who they are. Romans 13:10 (KJV)  Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. We are known by how much love we have for the brethren. We have a duty to love other regardless of who it is, but we had better be careful we do not love what the person might be doing. Lets warn others when they are destroying themselves that is showing we care. Note 1 John 2:15 (KJV)  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. This is reaching out and accepting people for who they are, not what they are doing.
