Friday’s List To Live By #73

The other day Norma Jean and I were eating in Cracker Barrel and I saw a plaque as we were leaving with “Rules For Marriage.”

I said, “That would make a good Friday’s list.” However, it would be even better to actually live by these “rules” in my marriage. And your marriage.

With only a slight modification, plus the addition of Bible verses for each one, here they are.


#1 Say “I Love You” (Eph.5:25; Tit. 2:4).

#2 Tell the Truth (Eph. 4:25).

#3 Forgive (Col. 3:12-13).

#4 Don’t Bring Up the Past (1 Cor. 13:5).

#5 Be Romantic (Prov 5:19; Song of Solomon).

#6 Keep Your Promises (Eccl. 5:4-5

#7 Laugh Together (Prov. 17:22; Eccl. 3:4).

#8 Compliment Each Other (Rom. 15:2).

#9 Enjoy Each Other (Prov. 5:18; Eccl. 9:9).

How many of these are you following? How many of these need improvement in your marriage?

–Ken Weliever, The Preacherman

    A blessed share Steve. I would like to add a daily kiss and hug. Marriage relationships are what Satan goes after. Thank you for the exposition.
