No Expiry Date

“For this reason a man must leave his father and mother and be united with his wife and the two shall become one flesh. ” – Mark 10:7-8

A husband was intently examining a piece of paper. His wife noticed him and asked, “What’s that?” He replied, “Our marriage contract. I’m having a difficult time looking for something,” as he continued his scrutiny. “What are you looking for?” she asked. The man answered, “The expiry date.”
Helpful truths for Married Couples:
1. They must detach from influences of their family of origin. “For this reason a man must leave his father and mother and be united with his wife....” Families of origin provide strong support yet being too clingy or dependent on them can cause marital strife.
2. They must be united in heart and spirit. “And the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one.” Marriage must put an end to selfishness and give way to cooperation and synergy.
3. They must understand that there is no expiry date to their marriage contract. “Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” The most effective marriages are a “love triangle” between God, the husband and the wife.
These work well for me and my wife, Joie. Try them. Obet Cabrillas (kpreacherobet@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
“Is my married life (or for singles: the intent of having a married life) pleasing to the Lord? Next to your salvation is your choice of a spouse.” (Norman Wright)

Dear Lord, help me to be faithful to my marriage vows.
