Marriage Monday – The other “s” word

Can you guess what the word is?

It is not quite as exciting as the “s” word you are thinking about, but it has huge implications in our marriages.

The word is . . . . STEWARDSHIP.

Do you realize that your husband/wife is on loan to you from God? “The earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains, the world, and those who dwell in it.” (Ps. 24:1)

They are not yours to treat as you wish. They belong to God and He has graciously allowed them to be part of your life. Therefore we need to be a good steward of the gift that God has given us because we will give an account of it to God (Romans 14:12).

Imagine if you began to treat your spouse as a gift from God.
