Three Re-Commitments For a Happy Marriage

Most Christian weddings have the bride and groom publicly proclaiming their love for one another and their mutual commitment to live together “in the holy estate of matrimony” for their natural lifetimes. Yet, a high percentage of those Christian marriages are ending in divorce. Why?

I think those wedding “commitments” may have been only slightly considered and selfishly pursued. May I suggest Three Re-Commitments For a Happy Marriage?

  1. Re-Commit to personal growth and maturity. Become a person to whom it would be easy to be married and live with for a lifetime! 2 Peter 1:5-8
  2. Re-Commit to please each other, rather than just yourself. Live so others can say, “That’s a fine, good thing he/she said or did.” 1 Corinthians. 7:32-34
  3. Re-Commit to please God by keeping the pledges you made with your mate. Matthew 19:4-6

Let us all re-commit to selflessly live out the marriage vows, we made before God, our family and friends on our wedding day!
