How to Help Your Spouse Pursue their Passion


You and I live in a culture that somehow always makes it about “me, me, me!”

It almost feels unnatural to think of others and how we can best serve them. But that’s exactly what God calls us to do! So today, we’re sharing 3 reasons why you should support your spouse and their passions:

  1. You are called to believe in them. When you choose the person to spend the rest of your life with, you also choose the person you will believe in for the rest of your life. Their dreams become your dreams, their goals become your goals, and their passions become your passions.
  2. You are called to encourage them. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 says, “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up.” So be sure to use your words, your actions, and your time to encourage your spouse to pursue their passion.
  3. You are called to love them. On your wedding day, you vowed to love your spouse through the good and the bad, through the thick and the thin, through the hard times and the wonderful times. And one of the best ways to love your spouse is to help them flourish into who God created them to be by pursuing their passion!

Take some time this week to ask your spouse what they’re passionate about, and then figure out how you can help them pursue this passion! You’ll be glad you did.
