thoughts on marriage from Sally Clarkson....

As you know, I am a huge fan of Sally Clarkson...please take a minute and read what she has to say on marriage, here...you will be blessed.




"Children, then, are an accountability factor in staying faithful. We have to choose to not give children a legacy of compromise, disloyalty, brokenness. Children always feel somewhere deep inside that it is their fault when parents are not loyal to each other. The way a husband and wife treat each other has a direct correlation on how a child builds his internal sense of his own being deep inside. It is very difficult to teach your children to follow the ten commandments (You shall not steal--even though I did by robbing someone else of their purity--you shall not lie--even though I did by deceiving my husband---honor God--even though I didn't when I broke my vows before Him. --very difficult to teach your children to have integrity if you choose not to have integrity in the very place that is to be the foundation where they see truth lived out. "
