The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.
The most dangerous thing in life to loose is not your money, nor your friends, nor your house, not your car, the most dangerous thing to loose is your Faith.
Healthy relationships should always begin at the spiritual and intellectual levels – the levels of purpose, motivation, interests, dreams,and personality.
When purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable
One of the greatest tragedies in life is to watch potential die untapped.
Marital faithfulness involves more than just sexual fidelity. Being faithful to your wife also means defending her and affirming her beauty, intelligence, and integrity at all times, particularly before other people. Faithfulness to your husband means sticking up for him, always building him up and never tearing him down. Marital fidelity means that your spouse’s health, happiness, security, and welfare take a higher place in your life than anything else except your own relationship with the Lord.
We will never obtain God’s kind of marriage simply by going along with the crowd, doing what everybody else does. We have to dig deep into the heart of God to discover His principles
Love in marriage is more than just a feeling or an emotion; it is a choice. Love is a decision you make anew every day with regard to your spouse. Whenever you rise up in the morning or lie down at night or go through the affairs of the day, you are choosing continually to love that man or that woman you married.
Few people who marry plan for their marriages to fail, but neither do they specifically plan for success.
I’ve been to my own funeral, and by the way I already saw who was there, you better be there… and I made a deal with myself, if anybody come to my funeral without wearing a bright colour, I’m going to get up out of the casket, walk to you, slap your face, go back in the casket, lay down and die again. ~ taken from one of his sermons, excerpts in the next post
