While infidelity seems to be a prerequisite for politics in Washington D.C., Mike and Karen Pence are a breath of fresh air for those who care about family values.
In recent weeks the vice president’s marriage has been a topic of headlines, with most pundits mocking his personal choice of not dining with women who aren’t his wife.
During an interview with the Christian Broadcast Network, the Second Lady didn’t shy away from talking about the role God plays in her marriage with the vice president.
“I remember saying something to Mike, something silly like ‘you’re my number one,'” Karen Pence told CBN’s Jenna Browder. “And he stopped right there and said ‘you know what, I’m probably going to disappoint you if you make me number one in your life.”
“What he was talking about was, you know, you need to have God as number one. Jesus needs to be number one in your life.”
Karen Pence’s message in this segment was simple, yet incredibly important: God must be your number one. That was something that she and her husband decided many years ago, and while they may get mocked from time to time, they still choose to place Christ as the focal point of their marriage.
God bless Karen Pence for sharing her story, and for not being afraid to make God the center of her life. We are fortunate to have leaders who care so much about the Lord, in Mike and Karen Pence.
If this inspired you, share it with others to spread the love of God with others!
