Days 22-31 of 70 of the Most Important Things We've Learned Over the Years
Happy Monday Covenant Groupies,
Sorry for the delay. So much has been going on with the holiday season here, but Kevin and I will keep all 70 of these coming for you.
We pray that they have been helpful, eye opening and even fun.
Day 22) Have one bank account!!!!
Day 23) Don't come into marriage with no expectations to change. Living by the phrase, "That's just who I am" will ruin your union. Be prepared to eliminate that from your vocabulary.
Day 24) Be willing to become flexible in all areas of your marriage. The rigid spouse stands strong and alone, while the flexible spouse stands strong with their partner.
Day 25) Learn how to fight without destroying your spouses heart. Allow them to keep their dignity. It won't happen over night, but it will be worth it.
Day 26) Together, learn the difference between sex and intimacy. They are not the same, but both are mandatory to your marital relationship.
Day 27) It's important to allow your spouse to be who they are. Trying to change them will always hurt your relationship. Let God be the change agent.
Day 28) Always make your spouse the most important person in the room, no matter who's in the room.
Day 29) We are fallen, broken and sinful people. Your spouse will hurt you.
Day 30) Train yourself to never hold your spouse's limitations against them.
Day31) Our spouse's weaknesses, if not looked at from a Holy perspective, can build contempt in your marriage.
