Psalm 133:1 says, “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!” Paddling a canoe takes working together in harmony! You might have to work on it for a bit to get it steering the right way, but have fun! Bring a picnic lunch and stop along the way. Over lunch, talk about what it was like trying to steer the canoe at first, before you got the hang of it.
If we are not living in harmony, then our marriage acts much the same way the canoe did until you were working together to get it going the right way. What are areas in your marriage that are like the canoe before you got it going the way it should and how can working in harmony improve those areas?
Don’t forget your camera (but pack it up water-tight). Take some pictures of God’s beautiful scenery. Choose your favorite and have it printed as a canvass to hang in your home. This is also fun with other couples, so invite some friends along.
Be sure to check out our fundraising event. We have six t-shirts that will help you express your faith in a fun way.
