Holy or Happy?

on September 7, 2013

For the most part, people marry because they have the mindset that the other person will “make them happy”.  However, nothing could be further from the truth – spiritually.

Possibly the most difficult station in life, a woman or man could choose, is to be a husband or a wife.  So, when it comes to marriage, remember there isn’t anything else to marry but another sinner.  To say you have a “difficult marriage” is redundant.

God uses the other spouse to grow and stretch us beyond what we can fathom.  It is marriage that will or will not create a picture of Christ to a lost and dying world.  Perhaps God created marriage to make us holy more than happy.

Think about it!

    This is so true. Matthew Henry attributes this quote to his father who often congratulated newly weds with it. “Others may wish you all Happiness. I wish you all Holiness, and then there is no doubt but you will have all Happiness.”
