But like I said, we'll try to see things from a Godly perspective.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: marriage is not an easy thing.
One time I was giving a talk about marriage and I was saying…
Our goal in this series is to really see the idea of dating leading to marriage.So the whole idea of courtship and dating from a Godly perspective and see what it is that God wants from us and what God expects of us.I know that as soon as I say the word "dating", dating has different definitions to different people and everyone has different ideas of what it means to be dating or in a "dating relationship." Some people, self admitted, have NO idea what it means to be dating!That's ok too because we're going to cover the broad spectrum of topics when it comes to this.And here’s the most important thing that all the single people should understand that the work to have a good marriage begins well before your wedding day. Today’s topic is something that touches each one of us in a special way because what we’re going to talk about today is how to find “The One.”. Forget about the bad things, I’ll tell you one of the best things about being the priest…I get to know when some people have found “the One” before anyone else gets to know!
The work and assembly that goes into a good, God-pleasing marriage and satisfying marriage starts much much earlier, even as early as dating and courtship. Sometimes we all do this (or at least the guys do it)…we buy the thing, we don’t want to read the instructions of the much assembly so you just kinda wing it, you just try to put it together in whatever way possible then you end up with 10 screws left and some parts and this and that and you say “ohhh” and you just push them off to the side. So what we’re going to try to talk about is how to assemble marriage the right way. We’re not going to talk about marriage, we’re going to talk about the stuff that goes into a marriage that makes it work the proper way. Raise your hand if you are single and actively looking. I get to know stuff and I may know a few stuff that is going on right now that not everyone else knows is public information!

He’s perfect and he’s funny and he’s smart and he’s successful and he’s a deacon!But the latest court ruling may have marked a notable first step.This is a start to a new series called “Real Dating.” A lot of people told me they were very very excited about this series that’s going to talk about dating.Where (excuse me I’m not likened to the movies and to the songs like that) but where time stops and where...uhm….i don’t know…those funny songs on the radio suddenly make sense now. Look here what I’m going to tell you guys, what we’re going to discuss today is that to find satisfaction in life, you have to find The One. You will never have satisfaction in life until you have discovered who that “One” is.Just trust me, stick with me on this one and let me explain myself.law as interpreted by Imam Abu Hanifa, an eighth-century Iraqi scholar who founded one of Sunni Islam's four jurisprudential schools.
