Belonging

Malachi 2: 15 Has not the one God made you? You belong to him in body and spirit. And what does the one God seek? Godly offspring. So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful to the wife of your youth.

The scriptures don't say whether or not the three kings were married and if they brought their wives with them on the long journey from Persia to Bethlehem. I am guessing that they didn't bring their wives, and would certainly have had opportunities along the way to give their bodies to another woman. Opportunity does not equal permission.

Opportunities abound to give one's body and spirit to other's especially for one's in the financial position of the three kings'. As we continue our journey to Bethlehem, let us make a fresh commitment to stay focused on the mission and to keep ourselves only for the Lord and our spouse.

Lord, we have already given our bodies and spirit as an entire human being over to you and have reserved ourselves only for you and our spouse. We re-commit ourselves to this vow and make a fresh offering up unto you. Take away any desire that is unpleasing to you. In Jesus name, amen.
