Make Your Marriage a Priority

Description

A strong marriage leaves a lasting legacy. Make it a priority to build a strong connection with your spouse.

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. Genesis 2:24

In the passage above, we read about God’s desire for husband and wife to “become one flesh.” That word “become” insinuates a process. You don’t meet Mr. Right or Ms. Perfect one day and all of a sudden you are one flesh. The process of becoming one flesh is a lifelong pursuit in marriage that takes constant commitment, intimacy, and connection from both people.

Whether you have been married for 5 days, 5 years or 5 decades, your marriage takes work. Becoming one flesh with your spouse requires intentional effort and energy.

Make time together with your spouse a top priority. Each morning, pray for God to reveal to you ways you can show your spouse just how much becoming one flesh means to you. And look for ways to place priority on your relationship by rearranging your schedule or even saying no to some other things that present themselves. Remember, a strong marriage leaves a lasting legacy. Use each day to build a strong connection and bond together.
