I was talking to a friend the other day and He asked me, "Why wasn't I interested in a certain female?" He knows I'm married and he knows my Wife. After I got over the initial shock of such an outlandish question, I told him my answer.
Why would I give all my greatness to a Mediocre woman? I have Greatness at home in my Wife. At the end of the day, it's not about calling any woman Mediocre, but it's like in math when you add two halves together, it equals a whole. So when the right Woman is joined with who God has designed as her other half, the Bible says, "the two shall become one flesh (One Whole). The biggest problem in Marriages is Infidelity. It dances around ("...and she twerks, she twerks.") trying to lure that half away from (His joining force), the other half. One-half plus one-half plus one-half, does NOT equal one Whole.
One of the definitions of Mediocre is barely adequate. It just does not measure up. Trust me I am by no means saying that I or my Wife is all that, but together, with Christ as the Head of Our Lives including our Marriage, we are unstoppable. The Bible says, that when there are two or three joined together in His Name, He is there in the midst. The two being, the Husband and Wife, three being, Christ, Husband and Wife. In this day and time, Marriages need Christ in the midst.
Lastly, catch this, I noticed that in Matthew 8:24-34 KJV, when Jesus was around, demons knew that their power was powerless. Greatness can only maintain being Great by allowing Jesus to shine from within. No matter what kind of darkness that comes our way, we can see a way through The Way. Believe it or not in a different parable, Jesus told His disciples not to throw their pearls to swine. Wow.
The Chef and The Ref, as we are more affectionately called, are just two individuals who God joined together in the Spirit and then in the Natural to walk through the challenges of life together. We have been married for 27 years and have four amazing children. We get many calls, text and emails asking us questions about a variety of topics as it relates to marriage. This blog was inspired by the Holy Spirit and an answer to the growing demand of couples who inquire about our experiences in marriage as it relates to their own. We do not make any claims of being anything more than two sinners, saved by grace who wanted to give couples an opportunity to have safe conversations that will make their marriage stronger. The Chef and The Ref are both licensed and ordained Ministers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ who wanted to create a safe platform for married couples to converse about a variety of topics.
