"So these stones shall be to the people of Israel a memorial forever." — Joshua 4:7
- What has been one of the most positive, life-changing events in your life?
- What experiences in our marriage have drawn us closer to God and to each other?
- How can we commemorate significant spiritual milestones in our marriage?
Along the marital journey, we experience spiritual landmarks. Whether they are born from joyous events or times of sorrow, these milestones are to be remembered. Just as Joshua used stones as a memorial to the miracle of the Israelites crossing the Jordan River, we can commemorate significant events in which God has proven faithful to us. For example, we might hold a celebration, plant a tree or return to the location of an event. Recalling God's goodness in the past will help encourage and strengthen us, so that we hold tight to God and to our spouse as we face the challenges of today.
