Married life isn’t always a cake walk.

So here’s some things to help. The links today all intersect married life and themes from messages at Christ Community Church over the last six months.

First, here’s a great (and true!) story entitled, “The Revenge of the Proverbs 31 Woman.” It hits on themes of mentoring, honesty, respect, and the community’s role in marriages. The Sunday message that relates: “The ABC’s of Wisdom.”

Next, here’s a challenge for husbands to think small as they love their wives. As Doug says,

Let me set the record straight–size DOES matter.
Research points to the fact that women prefer small.

Last Sunday’s sermon was on the Parable of the Mustard Seed. It dealt with how the smallest and most insignificant things are used by God for something much greater.

And if praying with your partner is something you would like to do (or to do better), Simple Marriage has some helpful tips and suggestions in “Powerful Partner Prayer.” There were audio difficulties the Sunday we talked about marriage from the book of Proverbs at CCC, so there’s no link to share.

This post was created for married adults and touches on themes of relationships, communication, prayer, service, attitude and lifestyle.


Sunday Followup

On Sunday, August 26th, we finished up our summer series “God’s Wisdom for Your Everyday” at Christ Community Church on the book of Proverbs. Pastor Chelsey shared a message from Proverbs 31.10-31 and challenged us all, men and women, individuals and community, to follow the ways of Lady Wisdom and Christ. You can listen to that message, “The ABCs of Wisdom,” here.

Here’s an article from The Banner in 2011 on “A Proverbs 31 Life.” How does this outlook on the text change its message for you?

This post was created as further study on a sermon topic at Christ Community Church. It is suitable for adults of all ages who study the Bible and desire to live an obedient life to Christ.
