5 Purposes in Marriage

One of the most helpful things in our marriage was learning the purposes of God in marriage. There are at least 5.
  1. Companionship – Great friendship – How are we doing as friends?
  2. Completion – Celebrating our differences – Are we receiving or resisting one another?
  3. Enjoyment – Great sex – Are we enjoying this great gift from God?
  4. Procreation/fruitfulness – Great kids – How are we growing as a family?
  5. Illustration – A picture of Christ and the Church. Eph. 5 How well are we illustrating?
When we see and understand that God does everything on purpose, our lives, our marriages, our families and our work are much more meaningful.
What purpose do you need to pay more attention to?
