The Meaning of Marriage: A Couple’s Devotional: A Year of Daily Devotions
The Meaning of Marriage is a 365-day devotional that challenges Christian couples to deepen their commitment to God and to each other. According to Timothy and Kathy Keller, Christian marriage is “friendship with a mission.” They encourage spouses to be best friends who base their marriage “friendship” on spiritual growth. The devotional focuses on three ways couples can help each other grow: speaking truth, showing love, and offering grace. Each day’s devotion includes a Scripture reading, a devotional message, a reflection question, and a prayer prompt.
The devotional’s reflection questions foster discussion and application, setting it apart from more traditional verse-message-prayer options. While the Scripture readings are a bit brief (one to two verses on average), couples can use the references to explore the verses in their original context. As long-term commitment seems increasingly passé, the Kellers’ biblical perspective on the beauty and significance of marriage is timely both for Christian couples and for couples exploring marriage from a Christian point of view.
