Sticking Together For The Long Haul



Ephesians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 13:11; Galatians 6:7,9


Reflection Questions

1.    What concepts and Scriptural truths did you discover in this MixTape series? How can you apply them in your marriage? How can you apply them in your other relationships?

2.    Read Ephesians 5:21. “Marriage is not dividing everything in half—It’s giving everything you’ve got.” What are your thoughts on that statement? Do you agree? Disagree? Why?

3.    Read 1 Corinthians 13:11. Think of a time when you had rough patch in your marriage. How were you able to get through that tough time together? How did your marriage adjust to the realities of romantic love being work?

4.    Read Galatians 6:7, 9. Examine your marriage. What and where are you sowing in your marriage currently? Are you pleased with your harvest or do you need to make some changes?

Have you seen the friendship grow the longer you have been together? What have you found to be meaningful about being “friends.”
