Building a Better Marriage Part 2

Welcome Back!  Let’s begin with Part 2 of building a better marriage.

6. Forgive your spouse.

Matt 6:14-15:  “For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”

7. Consider what God wants in your situation not what you want.

1 Peter 3:9:  “Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing”

8. Visualize what your life can be together.

Jer 29:11:  “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’

9. Pray together regularly.

Eph 6:18:  “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”

10.  Do NOT give up.

Gal 6:9: “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

So don’t get tired of doing what is good. Don’t get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. 

Also check out Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Eccl 4:9-12:

9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: 10 If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Love Never Fails!
