Marriage is for sharing life, not things. Marriage is for companionship not a fan club. I like what Ray Stedman says on the purpose of marriage:

‘One of the primary purposes of marriage is to provide companionship, a sharing of life together. I read recently that one of the famous actresses of the stage, the skilled and popular Gertrude Lawrence, once announced to her friends that she would like to get married. They said, “Why? You have everything that anyone could want. You have fame, close friends, abundant social life. What could marriage add to you?” She said, “It is because I want so desperately to have someone to nudge.” Thus she highlighted the need for companionship and the fact that this is an elementary hunger in human life.’

To have someone to share a view, milkshake, or meal with is truly amazing. May your marriage or proposed marriage be bliss, glorious and nestles in the word of God, where it will be safe…

Sharing Life

Stay blessed,

Pr Paddick
