Chuck Swindoll once commented that he’s attended more than one funeral where the husband wept on his shoulder and said, “I never knew what I really had until she was gone.” Don’t let that happen in your life. Don’t wait until it’s too late to make your marriage the priority it needs to be in your life.
How do we learn to appreciate our spouses? It begins by treating them as if they are the most important person in our lives. We need to talk to them frequently throughout the day, think about them often when we’re away, and say no to being with other people at times, so just the two of us can spend time together. The emotional satisfaction may not be strong right away. But the more you both invest in the relationship in terms of time and attention, the more you will appreciate your spouse.
Psalm 23:1 “Because the Lord is my Shepherd; I have everything that I need.”
