Pastor Mark Driscoll shard profound wisdom on how who you’re going to marry significantly impacts not just your life but also generations to come.
It’s easy to fall in love. Many quickly marry without counting the cost, without asking God for guidance, and end up regretting it. Perhaps it’s one of the main reasons why the divorce rate in America is high.
According to the Divorce report, “the divorce rate in America” reached 44.2% at the end of 2022.
That said, it is a very alarming issue that the body of Christ needs address. Pastor Mark Driscoll shared some wisdom that can help avoid such failures in marriage. He talked about the importance of choosing who to marry first and foremost.
The Second-Most Significant Decision Is Who You Marry
“The truth is when you marry someone, you’re making a decision for generations,” he remarked. “The most important decision anyone makes and the earlier you make the decision, the better off you are is number one, is Jesus Christ your Lord God and Savior?”Then he stressed “the second most significant decision,” which is “who you will marry.”
Pastor Mark pointed out that who you choose to marry significantly impacts your life and the generations to come.
“They will determine what kind of household you live in,” he explained. “If you have children, what kind of family they will be brought in? If you’re going to have grandchildren and a legacy, you’re talking about one decision that can make generations of good or bad impact. Think about it right now. The family that you came from.. what was your parents’ marriage like? What was your grandparents’ marriage like? What was your great-grandparents’ marriage like?”
A great marriage can be passed on for generations. But a bad marriage can also have impact for generations!
As Pastor Mark shared, let God lead you in choosing a spouse.
