Marriage is a beautiful picture of God’s intimacy and love for us. But at the end of the day, it isn’t necessary or even the most important thing for a Christian. It’s temporary, and can either be used selfishly to fulfill our earthly desires, or can be used to point to Christ. I’m grateful that MoveIn has helped us hold our marriage accountable to mission and being Kingdom-minded.
We stood on the balcony with her and her sister as they admired the fresh green beans growing in our tiny vegetable garden. We talked about the miracle of planting seeds, and I was reminded again of why MoveIn exists. We move in so that we can plant seeds, and then watch in wonder as God makes the garden grow.
