Ahab and Jezebel: Marital Incitement—Start a Love Riot in Your Marriage
1 Kings 21:25 Surely there was no one like Ahab who sold himself to do evil in the sight of the Lord, because Jezebel his wife incited him (emphasis added).
The biblical couple of Ahab and Jezebel are one [...]
When he was about to enter Egypt, he said to Sarai his wife. “I know that you are a woman beautiful in appearance, and when the Egyptians see you, they will say, “This is his wife.” Then they will kill me, but they will let you live. Genesis 12:11-12
I came across this passage this [...]
Early last year I shared an interview with Christian author, Gary Thomas in which he reminded us that “Every marriage is difficult…There is no such thing as an easy marriage…There will never be a marriage without struggle, on this side of heaven. It is healthy.”.

We’d read the story to him many times before, and of course I’ve heard the story many times myself all throughout [...]
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. Proverbs 23:7
I was talking to a friend recently, that shared with me his challenges of parenting. His specific hurdle was that his child also spends time with his biological mother, every [...]
I have recently been studying in the book of Isaiah and I came across this verse and thought in Isa. 7:9 “…If you are not firm in faith, you will not be firm at all.” (ESV).
Pretty straightforward message that hits us right in our heart and the heart of our marriage.
