While doing some Bible reading the other day, I ran into two passages that were very familiar to me. When Reading I found myself in Matthew 7:24-27. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard a sermon or have read this passage before. I’m not exactly sure why I was reading this particular set of verses, but I felt like it had some value to this whole idea of Marriage & Life.
Whenever I hear of divorce or relationship break ups, I often hear “I don’t love them anymore” or “I fell out of love with them.” While it is true our society has come to see this as a “WAY OF LIFE”, I believe it has to do with something deeper! Call me weird, crazy, or dumb, but I do NOT think people fall out of love. I believe they have chosen not to keep their relationship fresh. They have gotten lazy, and the focus has become all about them, rather than on their spouse, or GOD!
I strongly believe that this type of thinking has warped our minds, thoughts, and actions towards others. Let me try to explain this in another way:
THEY FIND THEIR IDENTITY IN THEIR SPOUSE OR WHO THEY ARE DATING, OPPOSED TO WHO THEY ARE IN CHRIST!!!!!!!
