What I'm Looking for in a Son-in-Law

In celebration of the paperback release of Justice this month, I invited some of those who read Justice to share their thoughts here. Rather than book reports, these posts take some of the themes of Justice and explore them as they apply to life outside the book. I hope you'll find these posts encouraging, whether you've read Justice or not.

For this one, I just have to say, Jake's been blushing since he first heard of it. He'd be the first to admit he's fallen short--he's pretty sure that's no secret--but with God's help, he's committed to being the kind of man who'd make a good son-in-law.

So, without further ado...

Marriage.

It’s something little girls dream about their entire lives. Their perfect wedding day, perfect spouse, and perfect marriage. As they are living their non-perfect life in their own non-perfect marriage, they start dreaming for their daughter. Dreaming isn’t really the answer though, is it?

Why is Life so Messy?

So, I have a question for you. Are you ready?

Here it is: How many of you have the perfect life? No problems. No issues. Just amazing bliss.

Okay, so the question was a set-up. No one can have the perfect life, although it would be nice if life came in nice, neat packages for us to live. The reality is that they don't. It wasn't for Brooklyn and Jake in Justice, and it definitely isn't for us.

So what's the deal? Why is that? Why did Brooklyn and Jake have to go through such tough trials and why do we? Why is life so tough sometimes? Good questions.
