“Thinking About Divorce?”

If you or someone you know is thinking about getting a divorce from your spouse, please read this story first.

A lady went to see a lawyer about getting a divorce from her husband.  She said, “I want to hurt him all I can.” “In that case,” said the lawyer, “here’s what I advise you to do. Start showering him with compliments and affection. Make him the best meals you can. Always look your best. Treat him like a king. Then, when you have become indispensable to him and when you think that he loves you dearly start the divorce proceedings.”
Some months later the wife came back to see the lawyer to tell him that things were really going great. “Well, now is the time to start the divorce proceedings,” he said. “Divorce? No way!” the woman said with a surprise in her voice. “Never, I love my husband dearly! You can’t believe how he has responded to me with kindness and love.”

God wants His children to be different from the people of the world. We can’t change other people but we can change the way we act and react to them and to the circumstances that come into our lives.

“[Christian], count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.  But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and  complete, lacking nothing” (James 1:2-4). 

If you know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, God’s power is available to you to do the things He wants you to do in this life (Philippians 4:13). He wants others to learn about Christ’s relationship to the church through Christian marriages. He has instructions for Christian husbands and wives in Ephesians chapter 5. Read it prayerfully.

You might say, “I’m not a Christian but I’d like to become one.”  To be saved you must believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins and rose again bodily on the third day (Acts 16:31; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8). For further help, go to www.kelseypeach.com .
