  God. My Spouse. Our Children.


This time of year brings a familiar feeling and obligation of what we do for “duty” and what we for “love” Family & Friends.  Marriage, the union between one MAN and one WOMAN joined together through covenant vows is a commitment. This commitment can be placed in the background when FAMILY & FRIENDS, come into play!

God. My Spouse. Our Children. In that order. This is most important for the success of all of our marriages. Many have debated about, “do I share my marriage trials and tribulations with family?” “I can tell my parents, right?” or “surely my sister or brother can help me with my marriage, right?”  This is a very sensitive subject and only to be handled with maturity. We trust that you are reading this because you desire maturation in marriage. There is no one scripture that points to the balance of whether you abandon your parents, family or friends, when you get married. The beauty of the bible allows for multiple scriptures that come alive in the word that give clarity as to the responsibility of our priorities in marriage.  God (Matthew 22:37) Spouse (Eph. 5:25-33) Family (1Tim 5:4, 8,16)  These all point to our responsibility as clear and good stewards of our covenant vows and surrender to God in our marriage and family.

We must be held accountable to a higher standard in our marriage priorities. We cannot be subject or lead astray by outside sources or forces that cause dissension between our covenant vows. Be clear, we are well aware that the kingdom was created for believers to fellowship in circles and not in lines. To make it plain, everybody needs somebody and we get that.  We must know that our fellowship and accountability must first be a “vertical relationship” with the “Father” (God), before we can ever have a “horizontal relationship” with our spouse in marriage.

Today, check your vertical relationship with God and be reminded how important God’s love is to you and your purpose in the kingdom. Give Him the first look, the ability to change and break you open to the things only He can reveal. He desires the ability to dictate and speak in your life, making you a better husband, wife, mother or father. Upon careful correction and love, then and only then can you become a great friend.

Today, FOCUS. RECALCULATE.PRIORITIZE. be reminded that …

God. My Spouse. Our Children.
