The Beauty of Marriage in One Sentence
by Michael Mckinley
I just finished Tim Keller’s Counterfeit Gods. As every other Christian in the blogosphere will tell you, it’s awesome.
But it was something at the very end of the book, in the acknowledgments, that really got me. In thanking his wife, Keller quotes John Newton writing to his wife Polly:
“It is no wonder if so many years, so many endearments, so many obligations have produced such an uncommon effect, that by long habit, it is almost impossible for me to draw a breath, in which you are not involved.”
I don’t know if anyone has ever better summarized the beauty of marriage in one sentence.
