Good Rules to Live By

I’m right in the middle of a message series entitled “Real Reality,” based on Ephesians 4 – 6, and using some of the “reality TV” shows as themes. Yesterday was Newlyweds and I talked about marriage, using Ephesians 5:21-33, I came across the Contemporary English Version translation of verse 21

“Honor Christ and put others first.”

That pretty much became my outline about marriage, and I said it could be the best two rules I know of for any personal relationships. I went on to say that all the major problems in my marriage (coming up on 20 years’ worth this June 30!) have happened as a result of neglecting one or both of these principles.

I want to put these simple rules into practice in my marriage, my ministry, and all of my life!
