This post is transferred from another blog I’ve been playing with.
Right before my family went to a friends house to eat, he posted this little string of wisdom (from his professor) on Twitter this past weekend.
Take a look:
I hope that you can read it. He said he got it from a professor. I’m sorry that I don’t know which school he’s taking a class at, because I would love to give credit to the professor who came up with it!
But, here are the bullet points of the 7 Habits of Hightly Effective Marriages.
- Look at your wedding ring every day. Think of the commitment you made.
- Think of something wonderful about your spouse every day. Share it with them.
- Associate with people who think and speak positively about their marriage and family. Seek them out, pursue them, learn from them.
- Behave as though God sees everything in and outside your marriage. He is a witness between you and your partner.
- Let your mate and children experience the “Fruit of the Spirit.” Love, joy, peace kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, control.
- Think of something helpful to do for your spouse every single day. Then go do it.
- Forgive daily. Ask for forgiveness daily.
Not bad, eh?
If I were to add a #8, it would be:
Say something loving, compliment, or just plain nice to your spouse every day.
What do you think? Would you add or subtract from these 7 habits?
