Works Like Play-Doh
God's word says that a married man and
woman are to become ONE FLESH (Gen 2:24, Eph 5:31),
that is Heaven when you get there. Before my sons were getting married
I had a talk with them and their future wife. I had each son and
his wife to be to each roll out different colored play-doh rods
about the size of a pencil. When two people get married they can
just be side by side, intertwined or tied in a knot. But if you
start kneading the two rods of play-doh at one end it begins to
make a completely new color. By starting at one end kneading the
two together you always have something fresh.
Marriage doesn't roll the two rods into
one big ball at one time. It may take years of kneading your lives
together. That way your marriage is always fresh and exciting. Some
marriages never start becoming one flesh. They just stay two independent
rods and never learn the joys that God has for them under His plan.
Marriage starts at the beginning and
spends a life time of kneading two people together. When we work
at it the way God has planned, marriage can always be as fresh and
exciting as the first day.
