The Importance of Honoring Marriages

One way to honor and strengthen our marriages is to live out a wholehearted marriage. God calls us to live wholeheartedly in the greatest commandment, directing us to love Him and others with all our hearts. We are also told that the very reason Jesus came was so that we could experience the fullness and abundance of life. Living wholeheartedly means fully engaging your heart in whatever is before you.

The heart is the key to a fully engaged life. Client after client sitting across from me in my counseling office attest to the fact that living a life without the heart engaged is less than fulfilling. Money, fame, success, possessions, and even relationships are meaningless if our hearts are not fully engaged. The apostle Paul made this clear when he challenged early Christians: “We have spoken freely to you, Corinthians, and opened wide our hearts to you. We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us. As a fair exchange – I speak as to my children- open wide your hearts also.”

In the same way, a marriage without heart is not really a marriage at all. Without heart, spouses are left in empty, disconnected, coexisting relationships.
