Doing the right thing

1 Peter 3:17 Amplified Bible
For [it is] better to suffer [unjustly] for doing right, if that should be God’s will, than to suffer [justly] for doing wrong.

Unfortunately, “We’re in an age of consumer marriage — this comes out not in people’s stated values, but when their marriage is troubled,” says Dr. William Doherty. “Then they start asking, ‘Is this meeting my needs? Am I getting what I deserve?’” In his book Take Back Your Marriage, the therapist details how to identify and resist consumer values in family relationships. “Permanent commitment is really the linchpin of marriage,” Doherty insists, along with perseverance through hard times. In a study of people whose marriages had been troubled but were saved, he says a main point was that “they put one foot ahead of the other and persevered, often outlasting the problem.”
From article: Shaping the Future of Marriage – By Jane Lampman

It is very easy to justify divorce or separation when things get tough in a marriage.  The Word of God teaches us to do what is right, even when it is difficult.  If you are in a difficult place in your marriage, go to God’s Word and see what He says about being a husband/wife.  Sowing God’s principles into your marriage is bound to lead to God’s blessing in your life.
