A Successful Marriage – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1851 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. So we are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Proverbs 16:16 says, "How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!" If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget. Today’s quote is from Mignon McLaughlin, and it is, "A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person."

A Successful Marriage

While I agree with this quote completely, I would like to expand on it a bit...A successful marriage is where both partners choose every day to love the person they are married to. It is not optional; if you are committed to a lifelong and satisfying relationship, you must choose to love your spouse unconditionally. Love is always a choice, and it is a choice that must be made on a continuous basis. From the beginning, God created us as His imagers to be in a relationship that lasts for our natural lives. Anything or anyone that subverts God’s plan for marriage is a violation of his precepts. The New Testament equates marriage as a picture of Christ and His church. This is a sacred covenant. So choose each day to love your spouse; it is not an option. Ephesians 5:25-26 For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church.  He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
