WE BELONG TOGETHER
Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving, honor to the wife...as being heirs together of the grace of life.
1 Peter 3:7
A story was overheard recently as two old men sat in a coffee shop talking about the recent death of one man's wife. The widower told the story of how he saw her, fell in love with her, and married her. He explained how she made him a better husband and daddy--and made him a better worker and a better Christian. Then one day she became ill. It took two years of decline, weakness, and medication before the Lord took her home. During that time, the man continued to work twelve hours a day, and then would come home and take care of her. Unfortunately feeding her and carrying her to be at night. At her passing, he was lost. His fried said. "That must have been hard taking care of her." The widowed man responded, "It was my priviledge to serve my queen."
That is God's view of marriage. Two people serving one another in love, making each other better. God is powerfully in favor of married love. It's true that marriage isn't for everyone. Neither Jesus nor Paul married, their God ordained mission in life pecluded it. But marriage is God;s idea. He defined its terms in the Garden of Eden and He blesses those who value its purpose and purity.
