 Happy Tuesday Saints!!!

I can’t wait til sat.  I found this article and this is what I want to talk about on the air this weekend.  I think this will be a great show topic with plenty of your opinions.  Let me know what you think.

Over 50% of all marriages today end in divorce. That means you can pretty much flip a coin and come up with heads (if you call heads) more often than most marriages will last. And quite frankly, it’s because marriage is hard work for one thing. That’s why they’re ending at such an alarming rate. Another thing is I think we’ve lost an understanding of what it means to keep our word and stick out a commitment along with we’ve become totally consumed with “me” and “I” in this 21st century culture. It used to be “People” and “Us” Magazine. Now it’s “Self.” And if our marriages are ever gonna last we’re going to have to be delivered of our narcissism (“inordinate fascination with oneself; excessive self-love; vanity”~Webster’s). One way to do that (and only with the Holy Spirit’s help) is by making sure we’re steering clear of, what I call:

The 7 No’s of a Successful Marriage…

No #1: Prenuptial agreements.

No #2: Put downs.

No #3: Wandering eyes.

No #4: Vices. (“immoral or evil habits or practices”~Webster’s)

No #5: Secrets.

No #6: Me first.

No #7: Living without Christ.

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)

“‘What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.'” (Matthew 19:6b)
