How to Have an Honoring Marriage (Marriage Vows Series)

Most of these couples are experiencing conflict in their relationship, but few realize the conflict often stems from a lack of honor. In today’s episode, we are going to discuss what it means to have an honoring marriage. I share several practical ways of how to have an honoring marriage that we all can do.

Practical Ways to Show Honor
One of my favorite Scriptures on showing honor is Philippians 2:3-4: Be free from pride-filled opinions, for they will only harm your cherished unity.

Possess a greater concern for what matters to others instead of your own interests.
