Sermon on the Mount For Marriage
Copyright 2007 Heaven Ministries

What do you think would happen in marriage if couples committed themselves dutifully to following the characteristics of the Sermon on the Mount? I think there would be way less divorce, how about you? Also, there would definitely be happier children in the household. Ah, yes what a glorious union of marriage just like God intended. 

1) Today on Monday, I will not act proud with my spouse. I will humble myself, even if I think I'm right. 

Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
Matthew 5:3

2) Today on Tuesday, I will only please my spouse, not myself. The whole day I will be sincerely gentle and kind to my spouse. I will do only those things that would be giving and thoughtful to my wife/husband.

Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5

3) Today on Wednesday, I will give in to my husband/wife wishes. Whatever they ask, within reason will not be denied. I will not be self-seeking. 

4) Today on Thursday, I will find one or more biblical ways to enhance my marriage. What would God want me to do for my marriage today? How can I make my wife/husband feel good about who they are? How can I make them happy?

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Matthew 5:6

5) Today on Friday, I will forgive my wife/husband for wounding my heart. I will ask God to rid my heart and mind of negative feelings and resentment towards my spouse. I will truly forgive.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Matthew 5:7

6) Today on Saturday, I will admit my weakness to my spouse and most importantly to God. Today I will ask God to grant me forgiveness and free me from the temptation to sin. 

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God Matthew 5:8

7) Today on Sunday, I will be a peacemaker. I will not quarrel or fight with my wife/husband. Today I will find one or more ways in which I can bring contentment and peace into my marriage.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. Matthew 5:9
