After officiating a wedding ceremony this past weekend, the words that I spoke to the couple have been engraved into my heart. The secret of marriage as Paul the Apostle states in 1Corinthians chapter 7 from the Message Bible is this. Marriage is a decision to serve each other ... How many times do people seek to BE SERVED in marriage vs. seeking to serve? How many people in marriage set up demands for the concerns to be fulfilled and fail in the area of serving their spouse?
Marriage in all its fullness should be based on our ability to serve each other. Understanding their needs, insecurities and their hopes and dreams.
In this we will find ourselves moving ourselves out of the center of attention and preferring our spouses above ourselves.
Service is the KEY!
