"Far from being a compromise, in one sense, marriage might be the toughest ministry [you] could ever undertake. ...
"If you want to be free to serve Jesus, there's no question - stay single. Marriage takes a lot of time. But if you want to become more like Jesus, I can't imagine a better thing to do than to get married. Being married forces you to face some character issues you'd never have to face otherwise."
Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas, chp. I
"... that's what marriage is for - to teach us how to love."
Ibid, chp. III
