Financial stability.

Referring to marriage today’s verse refers to a man’s financial security before getting married. Having finances in order gives people a strong foundation for beginning a life together.

Before I married Ron, I managed my finances, tithing, paying off debt, and saving. My husband did the same. When we started life together, we had a firm financial foundation, which we have maintained.

“Put your money in one account. Otherwise, you’ll start lying to each other,” said a friend, married for 30-plus years. Her advice remains the best financial tip we received before marriage. All our divorced friends said we should have separate bank accounts, and all our friends together for decades said joint. As soon as we returned from our honeymoon, we merged our accounts.

Finances remain one of the top arguments in marriage. Developing a budget and controlling your money instead of letting it control you leads to fewer fights and a stronger marriage. 

Don’t let money cause division in your marriage. Work towards financial stability and create a firm foundation for your marriage.

Lord, forgive us for not controlling our finances. Please help us make wise decisions with our financial blessings, honoring You and those we love. IJNIP. Amen
