Little Things Matter in Marriage

Divider

Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that spoil the vineyards.

Song of Solomon 2:15


Many marriages that end in divorce don’t have major issues leading towards it. It can be little annoying things that add up over time. It’s like sweeping little irritants under the rug, until we no longer have room for the furniture. While we should never nag or nick pick at our spouses, we should take notice when there is a recurring issue that we are not dealing with for some reason. Time doesn’t make it better. In fact, time can build a cement wall over our spouses’ hearts; and we can’t figure out why they’ve become so cold towards us. What can the little foxes do to a marriage?

Little foxes can eat up the fruit of love in your marriage when you don’t continue in regular physical intimacy and affection towards each other. Sexual relationship in marriage is a gift from God, not just for the raising of godly children but for the pleasure of sharing time with each other. Couples can meet each other’s needs in patience and kindness towards each other.

Little foxes can eat up the fruit of joy in your marriage when you don’t spend quantity and quality time together. It could be work, children, or ministry that keeps you so busy that you no longer have fun together. Couples can be intentional by establishing date nights or mini-vacations to renew their affection for each other.

Little foxes can eat up the fruit of peace in your marriage when you don’t learn how to deal with conflict in love and respect. Many times when couples reach an impasse, they either blow up or bury their problems. Either way, it’s not a healthy response to an ongoing conflict. God has called us as believers to have an open heart towards living together in peace and dealing with our disagreements in the Lord.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I recognize that it’s the small things that are eating away the love, joy, and peace in my marriage. Help us as a couple to do whatever it takes to build our marriage that honors You. Amen.

In His Service,
