Collaborating with our spouse in spiritual disciplines can strengthen our walk with Christ, as well as strengthen our marriage.

“And he [Paul] found a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla.… And he went to see them, and because he was of the same trade he stayed with them and worked, for they were tentmakers by trade.”
— Acts 18:2-3.

  • What does healthy teamwork look like? Talk about a time when you experienced it.
  • In which areas of our lives do we function well as a team?
  • In what ways can we work together as a team toward spiritual growth?

Aquila and Priscilla worked together in their tent-making business, and they served together in ministry. When we operate as a team in things like housework, childcare or exercise, we can make tasks in our married life seem easier and more rewarding. Likewise, collaborating with our spouse in spiritual disciplines can strengthen our walk with Christ, as well as strengthen our marriage. As individuals we grow spiritually through prayer, Bible study, engagement in our church community and service. As couples we can grow even more when we do these things together.
