Scripture: Job 42
Topic: What Do Men Benefit From Marriage
He is a 78 years old Pensioner, who has worked all his life to raise his kids.
Deprived himself of life’s pleasures to pay expensive School fees and living expenses for his kids both at home and abroad.
They are now well-off across the world, but his wife, 65, has relocated to live with her kids abroad, on the excuse of taking care of their grandchildren.
He is alone back at home, while his children call him to say hello and send money for his upkeep.
He now has to start life all over as a bachelor, not minding his state of health, battling with high blood pressure and other old age ailments.
But the question is: How long more would he survive alone?
But this is the reality for most working-class monogamous men.
Their old age is usually lonely and in many cases, Sad.
Try as you may, women love their kids more than their husbands, no matter how good the man is.
The older he gets, the less use they have for him.
Tell me then, what do men benefit from marriage?
Oh Lord God, help me not to work and labour in vain henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Happy Lord’s Day!
