Marriage is a covenant, a promise between husband, wife, and God. I loved the quote in the lesson by David A. Bednar:
“The Lord Jesus Christ is the focal point in a covenant marriage relationship. … [Imagine that] the Savior is positioned at the apex of [a] triangle, with a woman at the base of one corner and a man at the base of the other corner. Now consider what happens in the relationship between the man and the woman as they individually and steadily ‘come unto Christ’ and strive to be ‘perfected in Him’ (Moroni 10:32). Because of and through the Redeemer, the man and the woman come closer together.”I decided to use part of that quote to make a handout. It is sized for a 4x6 print.
I know that when I say my prayers and read my scriptures daily, I find that it is easier to be kind, loving, patient, and service-oriented. Those traits help me to be a better wife, mother, and individual.
What helps you to 'draw unto Christ', and how does that strengthen your relationships with others?
Thanks for the strengthening influence of Jesus Christ, and for marriage.
