What about my marriage? Should my spouse be the most important thing in my life?
Honestly, no. They should be the most important person, but not the most important thing in your life. The place of priority in your life should be Jesus. It should be knowing Him more and loving him more. Because a husband not being poured into by God can never love his wife the way she truly needs. And a wife, not digging into the scriptures and led by the Holy Spirit will never be able to give her husband the trust and respect he needs. Our relationship with God should take priority.
Here is the beautiful part. As we grow closer to God, and our spouse does as well, we just naturally grow closer to each other. Our passions become his passions. Our desires become his desires. Our purpose in life becomes less about having the perfect marriage and more about serving and loving God together. If you’ve never read “You and Me Forever”, we teach this class every year because it’s such an amazing change to the way we view marriage. Our marriage should be centered on Christ, and when it is, everything else falls into place.
