When someone talks about “being on mission,” what’s the first thing you think about?
For a lot of people, missions might be limited to the trips people take with their churches to go and build a well or orphanage in a foreign country. And while that’s a great way to serve God’s kingdom, for many it’s not a reality.
And it’s not the only way to be on mission.
It’s not news that the health of any relationship is dependent on the ability to effectively communicate. And in-law relationships are no different.
From the thrill of wedding anticipation to settling into the roles of husband and wife, it can be easy to forget that marriage is about far more than just two people.
Sarah* is a work first, play later kind of person, while her husband, Neil*, is a procrastinator. But when there’s a deadline, Sarah tends to shrivel under the pressure while Neil thrives and is able to swiftly get a lot of work done.
These differences aren’t necessarily good or bad, nor are they right or wrong. They’re just different.
Question: How important is the spiritual aspect of a marriage relationship? Do couples with a strong faith have an advantage over those who don’t? If so, why? Is it crucial that we share the same faith and practice it together?
