Living in the Loveseat

“Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.” Genesis 2:25

 

“This is my lover and my friend.” Song of Solomon 5:16

At the heart of every strong marriage is a strong friendship.  The best marriages are between two best friends.

  1. Friends carry each other’s burdens.

 

“Carry each others burdens and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2

Be there for your spouse in the moments that are most important for them; not just the moments that are most convenient for you.  

 

  1. Friends should always tell each other the truth.

 

“An honest answer is a sign of true friendship.“ Proverbs 24:26

 

The depth of your honesty with each other will determine the depth of your intimacy with each other.

  1. Friends don’t give up on each other.

“Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends.” Proverbs 17:9

Don’t treat your spouse the way your spouse treats you. Treat your spouse the way God treats you.
