What happened to that old nursery rhyme?
First comes love
Then comes marriage
Then comes [mommy]
With a baby carriage
Today many have replaced love with lust, skipped marriage and replaced the carriage with a 4 in 1 car seat convertible stroller.
After all as I was told “we got to learn to take care of a baby before we worry about marriage”.
In my book it’s about priorities. The first is love with respect and commitment to each other as a real family.
God created the first family unit with Adam and Eve, not Adam & Steve!
The real family unit should place God first then the others ahead of self and learn together how to raise up the children in the admonition of the Lord.
The way of the world says love self, take from others and you’re okay, I’m okay but don’t mess with what I want to do.
Shacking up isn’t hard to do and requires no commitment whatsoever. When things get rough the tough get going leaving kids to raise themselves without the love and support of a mom and a dad.
Any man can father a child but it takes a real man to be the dad who role models and teaches his kids to do the right thing because it is the right thing to do. –
