On Wednesdays I post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on Marriage, Parenting, or Life. Certainly, God is top priority but when married a spouse is second. Successful businesses know their number one priority and that compelling goal provides clear direction for the entire company. Likewise, in a happy, satisfying marriage, both spouses understand the importance of working hard to make each other a Number One Priority.
Strive to keep balance in life and relationships but recognize that a gratifying marriage is a “work” of love with healthy priorities. Don’t let your marriage deteriorate toward brokenness and unhappiness by forgetting to make your spouse a priority.
An important need for all of us is to feel valued. So reaffirm your marital vows and commit to valuing your spouse by making them a Number One Priority. Help your spouse feel cherished and respected through compliments, initiating physical touch, listening attentively, having sexual intimacy often, being cooperative with decisions, keeping balance with household roles, jointly planning for financial harmony, allowing for personal recharge time, etc.
TODAY: Ask your spouse, “What can I do or say to make you feel more like a priority?” (July 12, 2017)
