What Is Man's Chief End?

Man's chief end is to glorify God, [a] and to enjoy Him for ever. [b]
[a]. Ps. 86:9; Isa. 60:21; Rom. 11:36; I Cor. 6:20; 10:31; Rev. 4:11
[b]. Ps. 16:5-11; 144:15; Isa. 12:2; Luke 2:10; Phil. 4:4; Rev. 21:3-4
Every new believer has been set apart by God, separated unto God to be transformed into the likeness of His Son, Jesus Christ. In this sense, every believer is a saint- a person separated from his old sinful way of life and set apart by God to increasingly glorify God as his life is transformed!

The Modern Day Rib... To Bless and Protect...

As I said in the first post, I understand the blessing part, but not necessarily the protecting part. Aren't they supposed to protect us? We are the weaker vessel, after all...

I can see ways in which I should protect my hubby. Nowadays, men are put down, feminized, and made to look stupid. And yes, I will admit, I am really bad about focusing on his faults! I tend to notice those things before I TAKE notice of all the good things that he does. Shame on me! And believe it or not, I have been working on this.

And, I have gotten better about protecting him from family members who can tend to be demanding of his time. What it means that he worked all night long and he needs some rest!! Some just can't understand that. But anyway...

I know that I have a long way to go in blessing and protecting my hubby. Over the years, I have moved forward in my walk with the Lord and I have changed in the way I treat my dh. For the better, of course. But I still have a long way to go.

Thank you, Sunny, for the wonderful insight!
