Marriage is a thing of value and needs ongoing care to keep its beauty. It needs to be treasured and is worth the effort. It is easy to neglect marriage in the busyness of life, and when tarnished you can forget its beauty. The good news is it can be restored.
First, it takes recognizing the treasure we already have. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Luke 12:34) When we identify something of true value, our hearts will be devoted to it.
Secondly, it requires ongoing attention and care. This will take an investment of time and effort, and maybe some creativity. Marriages aren’t easy to maintain, but neither is silver and gold. But when someone puts the effort into either their marriage or wealth, the results are brilliant.
- You need a reminder to see the treasure in your homes with new eyes. Remember that things of quality are worth the effort to keep them beautiful.
- Clean and display your treasures. It can serve as a reminder of the treasure you already have.
Be encourage to really see the treasure we have in order to keep our hearts in the right place. When we forget, we can find them straying away from what really matters most.
“He who waters will himself be watered…” Proverbs 11:25b
