Inheritance. The work is the blessing. Vineyard metaphor.
If you don’t see the work you’re miss the blessing.
Be faithful now.
The time is short.
We raise children so they can leave us.
Don’t shoot your arrow aimlessly. They are precious.
Do I have an end goal for my children?
To be an evangelist to your children.
Godly couples resolve
Triangle pointing to God – intimacy with Husband and Wife
Everything in life, God knows we need them. Draw close to God and glorifying God. And marital intimacy is a by product of that. And even in our sleep it will be added to you.
If you love your wife you will do everything.
Destructive kingdoms in marriage:
Triviality – you will not build your marriage.
Stress in marriage
Kingdom of lies – Living a double life
Intimacy a byproduct
Return to building intimacy
Do mid course corrections.
Manifest in actions
Careful thought for others
Enter into the life of your spouse
Change is always hard
Connect with your spouse
What are your burdens? Suffering, struggles and sins.
What are your joys?
What are your dreams?
Actions that count.
Do not be self serving.
