The Best Advice for Marriage
By Don Loftis

After creating Eve especially for Adam, the Bible says, “For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become
one flesh.” (Gen. 2:24).
Marriage certainly demands a sense of connectedness.
Husbands and wives must be aware of each other needs and come to share each other dreams. Through common experiences and quality communication, partners reach common values.
However, far too often, couples damage their marriage by “going it alone.” Personal goals can create competition rather than camaraderie. Too much involvement in individual interests (hobbies,
travels, etc.) sabotages the intent of the unity candle.
Noted writer and counselor, Willard Harley warns that shared activities are mandatory in developing a lasting
relationship. He reminds us that we “fell in love” spending time together, and we will likely “fall out of love” if we fail to stay connected.
Years ago on the Tonight Show, Johnny Carson
interviewed an eight-year-old boy who was being honored for rescuing two friends from a coal mine in West Virginia. Johnny detected that the boy attended Sunday School, so he asked him what he was learning. The young fellow said that last week they had studied about Jesus turning water to wine at a wedding. Amidst the crowd’s laughter, Johnny asked him what he had learned from that story. Fidgeting for a moment, the boy raised his head and answered, “If you’re going to have a wedding, make sure you invite Jesus!”
In childlike honesty, millions of people heard the best marriage advice ever offered. How well have we followed it? Selected

Give God what’s right, not what’s left!

Give Satan an inch and he’ll be a ruler.
