Till Death We Do Part

It was always a staple expression in the vows of wedding:  "Till death we do part."  Now it seems to be an option.  The modern vow is conditional and really states, "Until you cease to please me and something better comes along."  What a shame!

What is it that eroded our sense of commitment and sacrifice?  When did we become a world of narcissists?  When did the other person's pleasing and serving of us override the desire to please and serve them?  I'm not sure, but it has.

Sadder yet...this has also happened to our commitment and service to God.  We have reduced the Almighty God, Creator of the Universe, to our personal genie in a bottle...there to serve our demands and wishes rather than the other way around.  It's time we all took a stand and reversed this trend.

One person CAN make a difference.  Will you be that one?
