A few weeks ago my Mom wrote a post encouraging her readers to do something special for their marriage each week. She said,
“This is my way to help maintain my marriage…maintenance is simply providing care and upkeep. Just like anything else, if a marriage isn’t cared for, it will fall apart.
Having a goal of posting a marriage picture each Monday will prompt me to be active in my care of making my relationship with my husband the best it can be, by God’s grace. In a day when marriage is being redefined and changed from God’s original plan, I think it’s essential that we set good examples of a godly marriage – a man and a woman who love God and one another for life.“
It can be easy to just coast through married life, especially when life is busy. He knows you love him, you know he loves you, so you’re good. Right? Maybe not. Proverbs 14:1 says, “The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hand tears it down.” Just as it takes menu plans and cleaning schedules to keep the house maintained, it takes work and effort to maintain and care for your marriage. According to Proverbs, if we aren’t building, we’re destroying.
I took the weekly marriage challenge issued by my Mom – if you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen the pictures I posted with #MondayMarriageMatters.
Today my Mom is also sharing a recap of the #MondayMarriageMatters posts from the past couple weeks. You can read her post here. I hope you’ll join in the #MondayMarriageMatters challenge – of course you don’t have to post it on Instagram unless you choose to do that. Just take a moment each week and do something special for your marriage – because it matters!
