MARRIAGE TAKES HARD WORK


Good marriages are designed in heaven, but they are made on earth. And it takes hard work.


It reminds me of the pastor of a big city church who ran an ad for a caretaker/housekeeper. The next day, a well-dressed young man appeared at the pastor's door. But before he could say more than "Hello, I came to see about...," the pastor began questioning him. "Can you sweep, make beds, shovel walks, run errands, fix meals, balance a checkbook, and baby-sit?"


"Whoa," said the young man. "I only came to see about getting married, but if it's that much work, I'm not interested!"


MARRIAGE TAKES HARD WORK; a good marriage will not just happen. Good marriages involve life-long commitment to another person - for better, for worse; for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health, until death parts. It takes time, effort, and energy.
