New Year, New Perspective

We don't always notice changes in our spouse, particularly when we're with him or her day in and day out, but we can be sure that changes are taking place.

As a couple, discuss Philippians 1. Read the chapter together or individually, then focus your conversation on the following passage and discussion questions.

“And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment.” —Philippians 1:9

  • What’s one thing you loved about me when we first began our relationship? What is one new thing you love about me now?
  • What is something you’ve been surprised to learn about me?
  • What can we do to learn more about each other?

We don’t always notice changes in our spouse, particularly when we’re with him or her day in and day out, but we can be sure that changes are taking place. Nobody remains exactly the same. No matter how long we’ve been married, there are always new things to learn about our spouse. If we decide to study our spouse with the right attitude, knowing God has placed treasures in him or her that we have yet to discover, we can experience a deeper love for each other. Committing to search our beloved for new reasons to love him or her can bring new life to our marriage.
