I was just reading I Corinthians 7.

32 I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to please the Lord. 33 But the married man is anxious about worldly things, how to please his wife, 34 and his interests are divided. And the unmarried or betrothed woman is anxious about the things of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit. But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband. 35 I say this for your own benefit, not to lay any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and to secure your undivided devotion to the Lord. (ESV)

Now, far be it from me to amend the inspired work of the Apostle Paul, but one statement struck me as insufficient.  “But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, how to please her husband.”  This may be a testament to the wonderful husband I have, but I thought that the husband was relatively easy to please.  It’s the KIDS who are draining!

I think it should read, “But the married woman is anxious about worldly things, like coordinating schedules with the another person (and his family on major holidays).  Then, there’s an increased likelihood of rugrats.   Just keeping them clothed and fed will make you wish for the days of concerning yourself with pleasing the Lord and your husband exclusively.”

Oh, well.  At least they’re cute.
