A friend loves at all times. Proverbs 17:17
You have probably heard the expression, “I married my best friend.” It sure has a nice ring to the phrase, but if you dig deep into your relationship, is your spouse still your best friend after 3…8…15 years of marriage?
When we were children, most of us had a best friend. We were so proud to have a best friend that we even had necklaces, bracelets, and keychains to give each other with the words “best friend”. We wanted everyone to know that you and this person were something special together, and we wanted no one interfering with our friendship! Best friends always wanted to hang out together and would put everything aside, just to spend time together. The phone conversations could literally last hours.
And when arguments broke out, they were forgotten in an instant. Maybe you even had a best friend who you never argued with because you were such good friends and were afraid to hurt them. I have heard many stories of friendships like that. And best of all, best friends told each other all their secrets! Fears, dreams, crushes, etc, etc.
Now, does this picture of best friends portray your relationship? Are you proud of being with your spouse and proud of who they are? Do you always want to spend time with them? Do you forgive easily as well as ask for forgiveness? And do you tell your spouse absolutely everything without holding back any secrets? Your spouse is your best friend. Don’t forget to treat him/her that way.
