Parenting, like everything else in life, is primarily about worship. Parenting is God’s good means to bring glory to Himself.
God designs marriage to be His sanctifying tool to shape us into the image of His Son and His pulpit to proclaim His redemptive love to the world.
God did not create marriage mainly for the joy of sex, or for procreation, or for companionship, or for personal fulfillment. Those are all intended benefits of marriage, but God created marriage so that we would find our great pleasure in proclaiming the glory of God through it.
We worship God by rejoicing in His design and His instructions for marriage. Our worship of God is broken when we resist His design and instructions for marriage.
