Is your marriage on the rocks or on the Rock?

An explosion in the kitchen hurled a man and his wife out of the window and into the next door yard.  In telling about it, the neighbor said; “It was the first time this couple had gone out together since they were married!”

It is sad that some men view marriage as a bath, once you’ve been in it a while it’s not so hot.  Solomon said, “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord.” (Proverbs 18:22)

It takes effort to keep the fires of romance burning in a marriage.  Marriage used to be a contract, now many regard it as a 90 day option.  The sea of matrimony is filled with hardships.  The best way to avoid shipwreck is to allow Jesus to be the pilot.  If the husband is in tune with Christ, and the wife is in tune with Christ, obviously, they will be in tune with each other.

Some say, “Singleness is bliss and marriage is a blister.”  This is not true of couples who are in love with Christ.  Surveys report that the happiest men in America are married and the most unhappy are those who are single.  However, for those who leave Christ out of their marriage, about the only place they can find happiness is under “H” in the dictionary.

According to Carly Zimmerman, formerly of Harvard University:  While one out of three marriages in America ends in divorce, when the husband and wife are Christians it not one out of three, but one out of 1,014.

Since God is the architect of the institution of marriage, don’t you think it would be wise to follow His blueprints?  Marriage is an unusual game; eighter there are two winners or there are none!
