Husband and wife – two people, one commitment to honor each other and to glorify God. Satan attacks marriage hard because two people united are much stronger and can have a greater impact for the kingdom. One way Satan attacks a marriage is by making us feel that one person in the marriage owes more than the other. In Corinthians 7 Paul is telling us that we are equal in marriage and that we must respect each other. We are not to be selfish, but love each other and not let Satan tempt us.
Questions for further thought:
1. How do you show respect for your spouse?
2. How are you being selfish in your marriage?
Challenge: Take time this week to do something special for your spouse. If you are not in a relationship, do something for the person that has helped strengthen your relationship with Christ.
