Review this week's message.

Key Thought:

There are many benefits to marriage.

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.
  • What is your favorite romcom?
  • What is your love language? When do you feel most loved?
  • How did you and your significant other meet?

Start thinking. Ask a thoughtful question.
  • What stuck out to you from this message?
  • If you aren't yet married, did this message give you new perspective on marriage? If you are married, how did this message equip you to have a better relationship with your spouse?

Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.
  • How can you speak truth while also affirming your spouse?
  • Your marital difficulties aren't permanent. How does knowing this encourage you and give you hope for your future?

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

Jesus, thank you for the gift of marriage. You have given me an incredible spouse to do life with and I am grateful for our relationship. Help me to value it wholeheartedly. Amen.

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.
  • This week, write down ways your spouse has made your life better and give it to them!
  • Find out what your spouse's love language is and do a special act of kindness for them.


Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.  If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.  Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone?  A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-11 NLT

Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.  Ecclesiastes 4:12 NLT

Yield to obey each other as you would to Christ.  Wives, yield to your husbands, as you do to the Lord, because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the church...Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it.  Ephesians 5:21-22,25 NCV

Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith.. 2 Corinthians 13:5a ESV

Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ.. Ephesians 4:15a NLT

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.  Colossians 4:6 ESV

“..forgive each other just as God forgave you in Christ.”  Ephesians 4:32b NCV

“..let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”  Galatians 6:9 ESV
