Love is A Choice – Marriage

This from the marriage study I am reading. I love it.

That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
Genesis 2:24 NIV

Marriage only works if it is first in our lives.. second to our relationship with God. When marriage is first, it thrives. In fact, it’s how you fall in love and stay in love. Because you prioritize the relationship and focus on each other first, there is a great deal of passion and good will in the relationship.

Priority means you give each other the first and best of your time, energy, and focus. Priority must be proven daily in real terms and not just in words. Good intentions mean very little in marriage. The only thing that matters is what you do and continue to do consistently. For your marriage to work, you must establish it as the first priority and be willing to protect it against good or bad things that try to distract you.

Most of the time the distractions are legitimate yet still no excuse for not putting your marriage first. Remember love is a choice. You choose to be married so choose to make your marriage the best it can be. Amen.
