Marriage, ministry and priorities

Marriage, ministry and priorities

One quote from a (male) speaker at last week's wives' conference. "I have always believed and said publicly that - if it came to it - I would willingly give up my ministry for the sake of my marriage."

There is a sense in which marriage and ministry cannot be compared to set off one against the other. They are of a different order. But ultimately, this speaker was right. 

If you are married and in ministry, could you honestly say this? If not, why not?
