Best Marriage Advice Ever

So, the apostle Paul stopped by this morning and gave me the best marriage advice ever. I sat down at my desk and opened up his letter to the Church of Rome (i.e. Romans). And here is what he said:

Outdo one another in showing honor. Romans 12:10b

I don't know about you, but upon hearing this word, I immediately started praying for my marriage, praying that God would work in me, so that I learn how to outdo my wife in showing honor. This is what the gospel is for: to enter into us and change us in such a way that we seek to honor others. 

Now that's real marriage advice from Paul that will strengthen your marriage.

Pray right now that God will show you how you might outdo your spouse in showing him or her honor. 

How might your marriage look different if you took to heart this exhortation from Paul?
