Message summary & scripture references

On the podcast today I am sharing with you seven (7) things I wish I knew before I got married. I am sharing this because a successful marriage doesn’t happen automatically it requires deliberate work to make it a success. Here are the 7 things:

  1. The financial cost of marriage is way more than being single
  2. It’s hard to reverse the debt mindset after you get married
  3. You must make a serious effort to fairly divide your time between your spouse and your vision
  4. Dating only gives you a small picture of the person you are marrying
  5. The Bible never gave males and females defined domestic roles
  6. Enjoy the time with your spouse before you have kids
  7. Love is not a feeling or an emotion but a commitment and act of unconditional service

[27] So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Genesis 2:21-23 KJV

[21] And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
[22] And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
[23] And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Genesis 2:18 KJV

[18] And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

John 3:16 KJV

[16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
