The Lord knows we're prone to want more than we currently have, even if we have a lot. To help us combat these cravings, God provides the best available counsel to manage this challenge — the Bible.

As a couple, discuss the book of Hebrews. Read each chapter together or individually, then focus your conversation on the passage and discussion questions below.

“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’ ” (Hebrews 13:5).

  • If we suddenly received $1 million, do you think our lives would be happier? Why or why not?
  • What emotions — fear, desire, gratitude, contentment, etc. — often influence how we use our money?
  • How might a wrong attitude toward money affect our relationship with God?

We live in a culture that’s constantly trying to convince us that happiness can be ours for a price. But the Lord knows we’re prone to want more than we currently have, even if we have a lot. To help us combat these cravings, God provides the best available counsel to manage this challenge — more than 800 references to money in the Bible. We must examine our hearts to see our earthly possessions as God sees them.

Marriage can have its twists and turns, but the detours don’t have to lead you off course. The 12 essential elements outlined in the Crazy Little Thing Called Marriage are biblically based and chart the course for a romantic adventure that will last a lifetime.
