A First Thing Rather than an Afterthought
At R16:16 we are a directory of bloggers, businesses and readers who are members of the same body of believers while being active on the internet, learning from and supporting one another in our efforts. Like anything, the internet can be used as a tool for good or it can become a trap of Satan to keep us from focusing on first things. We must be diligent in our efforts to follow God’s will for our lives.
One of the ways we can focus on first things is to make marriage a priority. We need to remember that our relationships with our husbands and wives should come before our business, blogging or other internet related activities. That isn’t to say these things aren’t important, but rather that we should consider marriage to be more important. I’m also not suggesting that marriage should take precedent over our relationship with God, no but rather God should be first in our lives, and IN Christ Jesus our Lord, husbands should love their wives and wives should submit to their husbands. Ephesians 5
1 Corinthians 7:3
“Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband.”
This month at R16:16 we are focusing on Making the Most of Marriage. We will offer encouragement, ideas and scriptures to help us each to determine to place our marriages in order of importance, making it a first thing rather than an afterthought.
