Dear Tony, What does it take to have an uncommon marriage?
Everyone has an idea of what it takes to have a “happy marriage.”
Some people suggest less time at work and more time at home. Other people suggest investing in one another’s hobbies and interests. Still others suggest giving more compliments and praise.
All of these are good things. And sure, they can all improve your marriage in some way. But there’s only one way to build a strong marriage that will survive any storm…and that’s through Jesus.
Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” In other words, we must keep him first if we hope to make anything else good or solid.
Because at the end of the day, an uncommon marriage is simply one that is built on Christ.
