Marriages and families are like the pieces of a puzzle.  Even when the pieces are all there, we need something to help us bring order out of chaos.  We need a box top or a blueprint if we are to fit our lives, marriages and families together in a purposeful design.

Unfortunately, some Christians never stop to evaluate what they are building.  Many give in to the temptation simply to increase the speed at which they jam the pieces of life together.  They rush to get married, , raise kids, and assemble their picture of success, only to find at life’s end that they were using a flawed blueprint—a counterfeit image of life.

Others measure success in the size of the puzzle or number of its pieces, but not in the value of the picture itself.  So they sacrifice order for quality—and the result is discord and disarray, isolation and loneliness, and a picture that never quite comes together.

Consider for a moment what you are building:

Are you building off the right blueprint?  Are decisions that you make about your marriage and family made by using the biblical blueprints?

I’m not asking if you have a perfect marriage or are raising perfect children—only if you are using the blueprint of the Bible and daily consulting the Maker of families as you build your home.
