Marriage: A Lifelong Journey Devotional

When we speak of marriage, words like “commitment” and “hard work” don’t exactly ring with fairy tale-like charm. After all, love should be easy, right?

Well, the truth is, relationships that stand the test of time take a little effort. But “work” doesn’t have to equate to “drudgery.” In fact, it’s the little things couples do for each other every day that God uses to enrich a marriage. As one writer put it: “Marriage is a journey, not a destination – its treasures are found, not just at the end, but all along the way.”

These are a series of devotions for couples written by the president of Focus on the Family.
