I'm not sure if you saw Dr. Mohler's blog yesterday but it was phenomenal! He wrote on marriage and how it is to be for life and the key components for marriage.

Dr. Mohler says near the beginning of his article:
Marriage is about our happiness, our holiness, and our wholeness--but it is
supremely about the glory of God. When marriage is entered into rightly, when
marriage vows are kept with purity, when all the goods of marriage are enjoyed
in their proper place--God is glorified.
Our chief end is to glorify God--and
marriage is a means of His greater glory. As sinners, we are all too concerned
with our own pleasures, our own fulfillments, our own priorities, our own
conception of marriage as a domestic arrangement. The ultimate purpose of
marriage is the greater glory of God--and God is most greatly glorified when His
gifts are rightly celebrated and received, and His covenants are rightly honored
and pledged.
May we all read and be exhorted and recommitted to our spouses for the glory of God.

Honey,

This is such a great reminder! As much happiness and joy as I recieve from our marriage, it is good to be reminded that the main purpose of our marriage is not about us ... its about God.

Thanks Honey,
