Zealous Husbands Who Destroy Their Marriages for the Ministry

C. Michael Patton:

Friends (and especially young zealous husbands or soon to be husbands), don’t make the mistake of having your passion for ministry end your marriage. Your first ministry is your marriage. If you don’t get that, you are not qualified for ministry. In the spirit of Priscilla: Do you not think that God is powerful enough to call you both into ministry or do you think he only has enough power to call one of you?

Hi Katrina,

I'm not sure what's going on with the link. Even when I try to get to his page from Google or typing the address directly, I'm getting error messages. Anybody know how to help with this? I think the problem is on Patton's side.

The link is fine, the problem is with the server the page is sitting on. Someone there needs to reset something. When the do, the link will work without having to be modified.
