What’s your idea on how celebrities can build good marriages and homes?
God and submission, you are a wife in the home before being a celebrity outside When God is in the centre of a home, it cannot be moved. Psalm 46:5 God should be the foundation and submission is key, be it man or woman. A man should be accountable to the wife if he is the celebrity; Love should be ultimate and God is love, so it still boils down to having God at the center.
