Changing My Thinking about Marriage: Contracts and Covenants

I don’t think I’m the first to admit that sometimes there is a disconnect between what we say we believe and our actions.

We believe in loving our neighbor, but that person on the street corner begging for money-is he really my neighbor?

We believe that Christ is the only answer to our sin problem, but how often do we share the Gospel?

We believe that our children are a gift from the Lord, but how often do we occupy them with the TV so we can have peace and quiet?

Sometimes our sin just gets in the way.

Today, I’m over at Joyful Mothering talking about how my negative thoughts and the actions they precipitate contradict what I claim to believe about marriage and how I’m working to change that. Join me?

  1. Great perspective Mary Beth! :-)

  2. Hey Mary Beth! Hopping over to read the rest now! ;)

  3. Hi, Mary.
    I read your article “Contracts and Covenants,” and found your explanation clear.
    I haven’t been married, so I may not understand what it is like to be married, but it certainly requires patience and love.
    Blessings to you and yours.

    • I’m glad you popped over here! It’s so good that you are thinking about these things before marriage! It will have a great impact on your relationship if you choose to marry!

Speak Your Mind
