Lisa and I just celebrated 35 years of marriage. As I think about the decades we’ve spent together, I’m reminded of how important it is to take care of your spouse and invest in your marriage. This principle is especially true in ministry.
Here are a few things Lisa and I have learned and committed to in order to take our marriage to a HOLY NOTHA LEVEL.
I shall have no other human relationship before Lisa. This means, as important as other relationships – kids, parents, other family members, staff, etc. – are, no other relationship goes before your spouse. Period. Your wife is the most important earthly relationship you will have and your schedule should reflect that.
Remember date night and keep it holy. Make date night a priority. Carve out the time in your calendar to make this happen. Get creative with your budget to make it work. This relationship is worth the investment!
What is something you can do today to honor your spouse?
