7 Marriage Scriptures Inspired by Love

Blessings loves!

Marriage is hard work and sometimes may seem like a mundane job. Let us not forget that marriage should have a basis of love for one another and God. Here are a few scriptures to remind us to keep love flowing in our marriages! 

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.- 1 Peter 4:8

Some things our spouse may do may seem unforgivable, but let us remember that we love our spouse.

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. -1 Corinthians 13:4-7

This says SO MUCH. When we want to envy, be prideful, rude, or rejoice in our spouse's trials; we should remember these things are not of love. 

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. -Ephesians 5:25-27

This scripture is so powerful. We should love our spouse and be willing to give ourselves for each other. Be a Godly example to one another.

Let your fountain be blessed,
And rejoice with the wife of your youth.
As a loving deer and a graceful doe,
Let her breasts satisfy you at all times;
And always be enraptured with her love.
-Proverbs 5:18-19

So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. -Ephesians 5:28

I love that this scripture talks about the husband loving himself and his wife. As spouses, we are as one and should love ourselves as well as our spouse.

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. -Colossians 3:18-19

One major way that women know they are appreciated is by their husband expressing love to them.

Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered. -1 Peter 3:7
