God’s Purpose for Marriage

 

“God has given you or will give you a wife who will be strong in all the areas where she must be strong so that you are not tempted beyond what you can bear… God will give you a wife with specifically orchestrated weaknesses that will be weaknesses sometimes in the very area where you most want her to be strong… Why? Conformity to the image of Christ. To be like Jesus.”

“How can you learn unconditional love through your marriage if you’re married to a woman who meets all your conditions? How can you learn mercy and pity if you’re married to a person who never fails? How can you learn to be a man of grace if you’re married to a wife who never falters?”
