John 10:10 “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” 
Gene and Pat Warrington had a good marriage. The two met when they were in junior high school, got married secretly while Gene was on leave from boot camp in in WWII and lived together for 69 years. In the end they passed away only eight hours apart.  Their kids said that their marriage was more than good and was an example for all who knew them.
Marriage is intended to be good and all men want a good relationship with their wife.  It is true that all marriages have challenges, but a people in good marriages recognize that love is a choice made everyday. In Ephesians 5 we see that if we are to grow in marriage we must have a “you first” attitude to husband or to wife and that we can grow closer through respecting and cherishing each other. Ultimately, marriage reflects the spiritual reality between Jesus and the church. 
How about you? Is your marriage drawing you closer to Jesus and reflecting the love of God? Do you expect your husband or wife to fulfill something that only God can fulfill? Are you putting the needs of your wife today ahead of your own?
Take a few moments to read and reflect on Ephesians 5:21-33 and choose to love your wife today the way Jesus loved the church.
God Bless,
