The Story of Us: Back Story: Great Expectations
Southeast Christian Church
Published on 06/27/2010
Whether married or not, we all have great expectations when it comes to marriage. Our spousal expectations are often heavily influenced through advertisements, reality television, and movies. These expectations may be inaccurate. In Genesis 29, we read the story of Jacob and Leah which is full of unhealthy expectations for marriage. Initially they both felt deceived and heartbroken. We can certainly learn from their experience in an effort to mold Biblical expectations for marriage. With Biblical expectations, you can get it right the first time and insure that you have a lasting marriage that becomes a strong testimony for Christ.
