Priorities are and will continue to be one of the biggest issues in every marriage. When your priorities are out of whack, it hurts. And when they’re properly ordered, everything just feels right. What would you say your ideal priority list looks like? Maybe something like this:
- Others (spouse, then kids)
- Everyone/Everything else
Depending on the day you may be good at keeping those priorities. If you’re like us—human—you probably find it hard to keep your priorities in check when life gets busy and marriage feels difficult.
In today’s podcast, we look at the above traditional “Christian priority list” and call to question whether or not it’s the most helpful way to think of priorities. We hope you’ll join us by listening in!
