Protecting Your Marriage… Protecting your marriage is about first recognizing how the relationship is vulnerable. The questions are.. what needs protecting and what is protection? It’s not manipulating, controlling, intimidating, harassing, obsessing on your partner. It’s caring for the spiritual, mental, and physical needs of today and tomorrow. The first person I protect my partner from is usually myself. My self centered motives and ideas, my weakness, my sin. I become like Jesus and lay my life down. I walk in humility, honesty, attentiveness and all of the fruits of the Spirit.
Our simple prayer today is: Lord help me/us to love my partner as you love me, help me listen to his/her heart. Help me today to dwell on how I can love my partner in a way they experience Your love.
