I am linking up with my friend, Mom's The Word to participate in her Monday meme, "Making Your Home Sing Monday." It's a day when we share what we are doing to bless our families in our home. If you would like to join in, click here.
The message at church yesterday was awesome! We are going through the book of Mark, and we were at Mark 10:1-16. Our Pastor spoke about marriage, and how the worlds view of marriage is. For many people, it's not seen as a covenant, but a contract. People want out because they are not getting their needs met. When you are married, it's about putting the other persons needs before your own. Laying down your "self" for your spouse. The world emphasizes, "What about me? What have you done for me lately?" Me, me, me!!
BUT, even as a Christian, I can sometimes let that worldly "attitude" or "mentality" get in the way. We need to also train our children for marriage by our example. If we're not in agreement with each other, do we work it out together, or are there arguments and tension in the home? How my spouse and I treat each other directly shows my children what is and isn't acceptable in a godly marriage.
My sister in law blessed me by getting me The Love Dare book for Mother's Day. I heard about the great challenges that are in there! I'm excited to read it, and bless my husband, my marriage, my children, and ultimately, the Lord. I just want to do what is pleasing in His sight.
