  4. None of the above

2) What does God want our marriages to produce and therefore a big reason to keep them intact (2:15)?

Leftovers – Man as a Chaplain

– Malachi 1:2a, 6-8

Guys, is it just me, or do you have a hard time getting excited about leftovers? Like you, I’d rather have a freshly prepared meal than re-heating something from the fridge that’s a few days old. Leftovers are not the best. You know there are times we serve up leftovers in life. It happens with work. Sometimes our boss gets our leftovers. It happens in marriage. You love your wife, but if you’re honest, you’re taking her for granted and she’s not getting your best. And it happens in your spiritual life, too. You show up at church, sing some songs, listen to a sermon, maybe throw a few bucks in the offering plate, and go home unmoved and unchanged. And what about our prayer lives? Do you do what I have often done—lay down at night when I’m ready to go to sleep and begin my prayers only to find that I am struggling to stay awake, and maybe fall asleep before I finish? Oh, so I am the only one that has had that problem? Well, I think some of you have had the same experience. Basically, we just served God our leftovers.
