I was sitting across a table from a little 8-year-old girl, and was teasing
her about boys. I noticed she had "diamond" earrings in her ears so I
decided to have a little fun with her. I asked her, "What does a girl get
from a man who wants to marry her, and it begins with the letter "D." She
thought for a moment, and in all the innocence of an 8 year-old child, she
said in an uncertain tone, "Disrespect?"
· We must teach what God's word says about marriage, and how the husband and wife are to treat each other (Ephesians 5:25-33).
· We must also begin to model our marriages before our youth so that they can see what God intended marriage to be.
contains too much potential for good than to sit back and watch it be
destroyed and dismantled by people who do not know the joy and fulfillment
it can bring if it is done God's way. We must begin to speak with our words
and our deeds!
