Practicing Your Faithfulness

I continue to think about the Tiger Woods’ tragedy. Standing in the grocery store line we get bombarded with the story! So here is my thought for today: Until recently, Tiger was a great example of the success that comes with practice. He is known for practicing…relentlessly. He didn’t wait till game day to warm up and hope for the best. He practiced every day.

Perhaps it’s important to let our kids know that before they get married, they need to practice their faithfulness to their spouse. The morning after the wedding  vows are taken may not be the time to START being faithful…maybe the time to start is now.  We’re not just asking our kids to say “no”…but to see that they are actively strengthening their future marriage just like they strengthen their muscles…by resistance.  Wait training. How do we practice being faithful? What do we resist now, that we will need to know how to resist later? Something to think about.
