* Worship and pray together (Matt. 6:33; 26:41). A key component missing in many marriages is spirituality. When spouses share the common ground of true worship, they have a strong foundation. (Psalm 127:1; John 4:24; I Peter 3:7).
* Communicate (Pro. 31:11; Ephesians 5:22; I Peter 3:7). Hiding things undermines trust. Communicate on all major decisions. Addressing concerns ahead of time leads to better understanding for both parties.
* Leave and cleave (Genesis 2:24). Establishing your own home gives your marriage the space it needs to flourish. Do not ignore your parents but recognize that your new family is a priority. * Date your spouse (Romans 12:10). You won each other’s affection by dating, so it makes sense to continue to spread quality time together to keep affection strong. Set a regular time to share fun activities.
* Budget (I Cor. 13:4-5). Arguing about money is the number one indicator to predict divorce. Set a budget together and help each other stick to it. Avoid debt (Pro. 21:20). Encourage each other to save. Put God first (Matt. 6:33).
* Compliment (Pro. 15:17). Try to compliment something about your spouse every day (Rom. 14:19). Gentleness stops arguments before they start (Pro. 15:1).

Count your blessings instead of your crosses; count your gains instead of your losses. Count your joys instead of your woes; count your friends instead of your foes. Count your smiles instead of your tears; count your courage instead of your fears. Count your full years instead of your lean; count your kind deeds instead of your means. Count your health instead of your wealth, and yes, above all count on God instead of yourself. “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.” Psalm 103:2
* You can find answers (I Peter 3:15).
* God commanded it (2 Timothy 2:15; John 5:39; I Peter 2:2;
* Ignorance is not excused (Acts 17:30).
* Ignorance destroys (Hosea 4:6).
* Ignorance causes church problems (Romans 16:18).
* You can make good decisions (Psalms 119:105).
* It keeps us from sin (Psalm 119:11).
1) Sin is a violation of the conscience (Romans 14:23).
2) Sin is knowing to do good, and not doing it (James 4:17).
3) Sin is breaking God's law (I John 3:4).
4) Sin is unrighteousness (failing to keep God's commands) (I John 5:17).
As the mother was completing the purchase of two new suits for sons, Charles and Arthur, Charles proudly said to his brother, “Won't I look nice in Bible study and Church Sunday?” A friendly lady standing near overheard him and asked, “Do you go to Bible study and Church?” And the small brother, Arthur, only five, giving her a withering glance, inquired, “Where else would I go on Sunday morning?” Blushing, the lady remarked, “That's the best sermon I ever heard.” The most precious gift we can give our children is not a trip to the beach, a shining new toy or a new suit of clothes but the opportunity to study the God in whose image they are created. Plan to be present with your children for Bible study; in this you can give them a gift that will neither grow old nor wear out.
For life to be the fullest, sweetest and most rewarding:
* Do more than move; improve.
* Do more that get; give.
* Do more than regret; repent.
* Do more than look; see.
* Do more than sympathize, help.
* Do more than attend church, worship.
* Do more than built a house; make a home.
* We live in deeds, not years, in thoughts, not breaths, in feelings, not in figures on a dial.
We should count time by heartthrobs.
He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best. Do more than breathe; live.
