Who’s willing to embrace a calling that requires boundless courage, oceans of trust, the skills of a diplomat, and the capacity to forgive 70 times seven times—weekly? That calling is marriage, which we celebrate this World Marriage Day. A brief romance can be like doggy-paddling around the matter of commitment before getting out and toweling off, whereas getting married is like diving into the deep end of the pool of love. We have to be all in, knot-tied and fortunes joined before the genuine work of love can begin. Take time to salute the boldly married today.
“Put out into deep water, and lower your nets for a catch.”
