What They Are And How To Get There-Part 1
The first goal as a couple is to establish why we are here. It is to create a philosophy of life. This may be a lofty first step but all other goals will be filtered through this one goal. It is imperative to answer this question as a couple. One answer to why we are here as a family, would be to glorify God. This first set of goals are spiritual. Examples would be, making sure each spouse has time for personal time with God, spouses have a time to pray together, family devotions together and how we serve others as a family. Once you have established the broad goals you can spend time talking through a plan of action, the how to’s, the how often, and then fitting it into the schedule. With the spiritual goals mapped out spouses can then work through other goals for marriage with the filter set in place, would this glorify God?
