Before I get ready for my step-sister’s wedding I thought I would write just a few quick thoughts about marriage. I am not married so I have no thoughts of my own on how a marriage should be, but i was listening to a sermon about what marriage should be.
The pastor talked about marriage as two people joining together to help each other become closer to Christ. Most people think about marriage as a solution to their “single” problems, but in reality it has its own problems and unless we are focused on pushing our spouse towards a better relationship with Jesus then those problems will eventually deteriorate the quality of the marriage.
After today I will have been to three weddings this summer with another two to go, two of the five will have been family members. As guests to the weddings we should be praying for these couples to grow together as they grow closer to Jesus.
