Couple Challenge: Faith & Marriage

256

Take a moment and consider all the ways you feel your spouse “completes” you and make a list.

Did you know that is was never God’s intention for your spouse to “complete” you? When we become focused on our mate to complete us, we place unrealistic expectations on him/her. Since we are only “complete” in our relationship with Jesus Christ, trying to place your spouse in that place makes him/her an idol. Beside each item on the list that you made, search out a Bible verse that talks about how God meets that need. Confess any ways you’ve made your spouse an idol and begin looking to God to fulfill those areas. Take a few minutes to share your lists and the verses you wrote down with each other.
