Every marriage should have goals; consciously set goals to live for. The word of God gives examples of goals you can set and live for.

These are the ways that God has recommended we live:

Live in harmony and be of the same mind, be of one purpose, have the same love, be in full accord and of one harmonious mind and intention. Stay away from contention, strife, selfishness or arrogance.

Instead, live in true humility (lowliness of mind) regard your spouse as better than and superior to you [thinking more highly of one another than you do of yourselves].

Let each of you look upon and be concerned for not [merely] his/her own interests, but each for the interest of the other. Be humble to each other. Philippians 2:2-5 Amplified

What a purpose to live for, you will agree that aiming to achieve these attitudes and atmosphere can make all the difference in your marriage.

God wants your relationship to be different, the only way to keep wanting more of each other is by living for eternal purposes like these.

Let the purposes stated above be your main aim, go after each of them, list them out and discuss them together or better still go through them and see how you can contribute to each of them becoming the main pillars of your home.

We love to see you happy, strong, blessed, becoming a blessing and shining as light in the midst of a dark and lost world.

The next time you are rejoicing and celebrating, let one of the reasons be that you are maturing and moving forward in one of these purposes.
