Interfaith Marriages

Being married to someone with a different religion can be both enriching and challenging.

Yesterday’s reading suggested for Christian slaves to accept their heathen masters’ authority.
Today’s reading 1 Peter 3:1-22 starts: “In the same way you wives must submit yourselves to your husbands”
– You best win them for Christ if you don’t try to proselytize them but show them God’s unconditional love for all!

The same applies to Christian husbands with non-Christian wives: “In the same way you husbands must live with your wives with the proper understanding that they are more delicate than you.”
– Treat them with respect, because you are no better than they are.
