Core 4 Habits

God’s way for marriage might not be easy to live out, but it’s easier to understand. God gives us only a few verses on marriage. We believe He did that on purpose. From these verses come the Core 4 Habits.

1. Have Serious Fun

    Having fun as a couple is not optional; it’s
    essential. We believe the best way to protect
    your marriage is to enjoy it regularly.
    (Proverbs 5:18)

2. Respect and Love

    Of the few verses God gives to husbands and
    wives, the directive to respect and love is
    commanded more than any other. This truth
    can set us free when we understand the
    interplay of respect and love.
    (Ephesians 5:21-33)

3. Love God First

    When Jesus was asked about the greatest
    commandment, His answer was to love God
    with all you are and to love others as well as
    you love yourself. Loving God in your
    individual life greatly impacts your married
    life. (Matthew 22:37-40)

4. Practice Your Promise

    Our spouses trusted that we would do what
    we promised when we said, “I do”—to love
    each other and to stay together no matter
    what. Knowing and experiencing a lasting
    commitment is vital to every marriage.
    (Proverbs 5:18; Malachi 2:15)
