Marriage isn’t hard.

Marriage isn’t hard. It’s easy.

All you have to do is die to self every day.
Consider your spouse’s interests as more important than your own.
Live to serve, not be served.
Pour out grace and forgiveness over and over and over.
Choose to be vulnerable instead of self-protect.
Prioritize God first, your spouse second. always.

Doing all of that is hard. Very hard. In fact, it’s humanly impossible. But thanks to God’s Spirit at work inside you and me, we can do those things. With lots of practice and making the selfless decision every day, we can love our spouse like Christ loves us. Unconditionally, full of grace, fully giving of ourselves.

And if we can do that, marriage is pretty easy.
