A single woman should only marry a man she can follow: Ladies if you are single, be very, very careful who you date and marry.

The last thing you want is some guy you don't trust, he's not wise, he doesn't do his homework, he's harsh, he's inconsiderate, he's immature, he's a boy, you're more his mother than you are his mate, Real danger...real danger...

Marriage includes a spouse, and often children. But the goal, center, and Mark Driscoll Picture Quote

Family Quotes, Goal Quotes, Marriage Quotes, Serve Quotes

Marriage includes a spouse, and often children. But the goal, center, and purpose of marriage is not self, spouse, or children. The ultimate goal of marriage and family is the glory of God.

Remember, neither your child nor your husband (or wife) should be who you worship, but instead who you worship with.

In marriage we have a duty to God, our spuses, the world, Mark Driscoll Picture Quote

God Quotes, People Quotes, Serve Quotes, Wise Quotes

In marriage we have a duty to God, our spuses, the world, and future generations. But we are sinners.

You have been told that God is a loving, gracious, merciful, kind, compassionate, wonderful, and good sky fairy who runs a day care in the sky and has a bucket of suckers for everyone because we’re all good people. That is a lie… God looks down and says ‘I hate you, you are my enemy, and I will crush you,’ and we say that is deserved, right and just, and then God says ‘Because of Jesus I will love you and forgive you.’ This is a miracle.

I’m frankly sick of all the books and movies trying to Mark Driscoll Picture Quote

People Quotes

I’m frankly sick of all the books and movies trying to predict when Jesus will return and we’ll get to start our eternal vacation at his all-inclusive resort called heaven. I’m also sick of the nerd parade of books and conferences that approach the Bible like scholars whose mission is to get their Masters rather than soldiers who are on mission with their Master.
