Discussion for Ephesians 5:31

  • Shaughnessy on Ephesians 5:31
    My wife and I, from the very beginning of our marriage, 32 years ago, made the Lord the foundation of our marriage. We have not been difficulty free all these years and what compounds our lives is; my wife has a twin sister and she is not a believer. She has tried at times to come between my wife and I however, my wife is a strong Christian woman that put her sister in her place! My definition of "family is; you, your spouse, and your children. Everyone else is "extra!" My wife and I are very happy. We love Jesus, we attend church regularly, we love each other, and we have a solid marriage thanks to the Holy Spirit. None of my wife's family go to church nor do any of them believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as savior. We finally moved away from both our extended family and are doing well. Never let Satan drive a wedge in between you or your spouse via anyone or anything! Be obedient to His word and always keep Him nuber one in your life. You wife should be #2 and children #3. God bless....

    Married for 29 years. My wife has always been afraid to leave her family. As a husband and as a father, my word has always been condemned. I try to avoid an attitude of "see I told you" but after three decades my fears are reality. Problems as parents, problems with finances and problems with physical health continue. Several times I'm asked if I would do it again. I would truly require that we move far away so we can develop our own family! A house divided cannot stand! Important roles as Christians, as spouses and then as parents! Nurture these now. For thise
