A piece of marriage advice

Yesterday we finished up a short series on Marriage at Hub City. The goal was to go back to a few basic and foundational principles that many of us know, but all of us need to be reminded of regularly.

I thought I'd wrap things up with offering one final piece of a marriage advice. Personally, I think this is the most important thing in a marriage after having a growing relationship with God through Jesus.

Prioritize your spouse above everything but Jesus.

What do I mean by everything? Everything.

Your spouse should take priority over your kids, your job, your hobbies, and even yourself.

This is what God is telling us when he says that a husband will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife. We forsake all for the sake of putting our spouse first.

Many people have a problem with that. Maybe that's why so many marriages either don't make it or they don't achieve the intimacy that could be achieved.

So, if you're married, how can you prioritize your spouse this week? 

It take work. It's countercultural. It's hard. 

But it's worth it.
