Keeping Your Marriage Growing

Happy Valentine's Day . . . a day late, but it's the sentiment not the day, right?! :o)

I thought I'd share the bullet points from our pastor's sermon yesterday, titled "Keeping Your Marriage Growing," in celebration of this amorous holiday.

Philippians 1:9 "This is my prayer for you: that your love will grow more and more and more; that you will have knowledge and understanding with your love."

1. Keep on Paying Attention
"Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry." James 1:19

2. Keep on Making Adjustments
"We should love people not only with words and talk, but by our actions and true caring." 1 John 3:18

3. Keep on Showing Affection
"Love each other with genuine affection and take delight in honoring each other." Romans 12:10

4. Keep on Giving Affirmation
"Encourage each other every day while it is 'today'." Hebrews 3:13

5. Keep on Following Jesus
"As you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so continue to live in Him." Colossians 2:6
