My wife told me she found a special vacation trip in the newspaper for four days which included airfare, meals and hotel so I told her to book it. My mother and dad had promised to keep the children. As we were boarding the airplane we realized the vacation was a honeymoon special. They only needed half of the seats on the flight there because everyone was sitting so close. The next few days the story began to change because some of the couples started having little disagreements that sometimes led to out and out arguments and even shouting and door slamming. On the flight back many were not sitting very close or talking to each other and one young woman refused to even get on the same plane with her new husband. That trip reminded me of something all Christians face in life. It is one thing to accept Jesus Christ but it is another thing to live for Him. We must learn to do what he wants or expects of us, not just having our own way. Selfishness probably destroys more marriages than anything else. We must be willing to submit or yield ourselves to each other, or love the other person more than ourselves, (Ephesians 5:22-33). We can grow in our marriages for the better or worse and so it is in Christianity, (1 Peter 2:2, 2 Peter 3:18, Hebrews 6:1). See you in Church next Sunday.
