Is it the right time to consider marriage?

By  |  0 Comments

An unmarried man (woman) …is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he (she) can please the Lord. But a married man (woman) is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he (she) can please his wife (her husband)— and his (her) interests are divided. 1 Corinthians 7: 32-34

​I am married. Marriage is a lot of fun and it is a lot of sacrifice and work.  I was single for 25 years.  When I was a youngster the message that I understood was get married and have a family. 

Now things are a little different. The message today is get an education, establish your career, be self-sufficient. When it comes to relationships many are choosing to be in relationships of convenience, have friends with benefits, rather than marriage. Marriage, based on sacrificial love, has blessings and benefits that relationships of convenience and friends with benefits do not have.

In order to experience the benefits of marriage, you need to get married. When you take godly marriage vows, your man agrees to love you unconditionally and sacrificially. It is a covenant between him and God. You also enter into the same covenant with God to love him. Only enter the covenant with God when you understand your role and are truly ready.  In marriage two imperfect people come together into a relationship that should develop into a loving, safe, caring, and secure God-fearing oneness. 

You can no longer be self-centered, selfish, or self-focused. Marriage is not all about you. God’s way and plan is best.

Myth buster: You can get an education and establish your career while married.
