{Genesis 2:18 and 24; NLT}

 Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.”…This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.


Without you, your spouse will not become the man or the woman that God intends him or her to be and the Kingdom of God will not advance as it is meant to advance. Your spouse plays the most vital role in your life. You play the most critical role in your spouse’s life. No one will have a greater impact on your spouse’s soul than you. No one has greater access to your spouse’s heart than you. This is an enormous honor.

John and Stasi Eldredge; Love and War

Questions for reflection:

  • How can you be a “helper” to your spouse?
  • Why is it important for husband and wife to leave their former lives (i.e. with their parents)?
  • In what ways has God used you to build up your spouse?
  • Why is being married an “enormous honor”?
