My husband’s grandparents have been married for 74 years. Kim Kardashian was married for 72 days.
I’ve never watched the show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” but the family is featured on the news a lot. Mom of the crew, Kris Kardashian-Jenner is married to former Olympian Bruce Jenner. Yeah, the guy who used to be on the Wheaties box when I was in third grade. I looked at him in his moment of victory every morning.
The Kardashian/ Jenner family tree is complicated. Kris has 4 children with her late first husband. Jenner has 4 children from two previous marriages. And together, they have two children. Whew! That’s a lot to keep up with.
This week, the news headlines have gone crazy over Kris Jenner’s daughter Kim Kardashian. Are you thinking, who cares? Well I do. Because if I’m supposed to keep up with these Kardashians, I want to know where they’re headed.
You know I’m not serious about keeping up, right? It’s Hollywood, even if it’s called reality TV, there’s nothing real about it. But we can learn something from the news headlines. After 72 days of marriage, Kim Kardashian announced this week that she is divorcing famous husband, Kris Humphries, a player for the NBA’s New Jersey Nets.
I want to challenge people all over America, not to keep up with the Kardashians, but to surpass them.
For the married, commit to your marriage and take that commitment seriously. Marriage is a complicated thing and it takes work.
For the unmarried, remember that a million dollar wedding can’t fix a cheap relationship. There’s no way a relationship goes sour in only 72 days. The problem had to have been there on the day they said their vows.
For the young girls, and women who watch the show, forget about keeping up. Set the bar higher and aspire to a relationship with someone who respects you and treats you like a princess daughter of Jesus. Anything less is a waste of your time.
For the men who care about the Kardashian story, remember a woman’s beauty doesn’t come from fashion, hair or fake eyelashes. It comes from a pure heart that loves the Lord.
Forget about reality TV. Let’s make our reality something that surpasses the Kardashians.
