When my youngest was only about eighteen months old, I noticed he was going around our house picking up books and saying, "Jesus" and "Bible." I thought this was sweet, yet odd.

Unfortunately, I wasn't in a place in my walk with God where I was reading the Bible regularly and I hadn't been showing a Bible to him. Then one Sunday morning I walked by the church nursery and peeked in. Our sweet nursery worker was sitting on the floor with the kids quietly sitting around her, and an infant in her lap.

As I looked closer, I noticed each child, even the infant, had a New Testament Bible in their hands. They were caressing the Bible as she led them in saying, "We love Jesus and we love the Bible." Tears formed in my eyes. It struck me that our kids need the Word of God just as much as we do. Their souls crave it, even if they don't know it.

As a mom and former children's pastor, I am a huge advocate for children having their own Bible. Our kids need to have access to the Word of God and they need to learn how to read the Bible and care for their Bible.

I remember talking to a sweet friend once who told me about a new investment she's in. One that will have a great return.

Her marriage.

A wise investment #marriage #wife #husband

She and her husband have decided to be intentional about their marriage this year and truly invest in it.

If you invest in anything, your marriage should be it.

Why should you invest in your marriage?

Marriage is forever. When you said "I do," you were promising God and your husband to be with him forever. Why would you not invest in something that should last a lifetime?

You are teaching your kids about marriage. Whether you are trying to or not, you are teaching them. Your daughters are learning how to be a wife and what kind of husband to marry. And your sons are learning how to be a husband and what kind of wife to marry. Teach them wisely.

How should you invest in your marriage?

Date. I cannot say it enough: date your mate! Dates do not have to be extravagant. Go for a walk around the block. Get ice cream and talk while you eat it. After the kids go to bed, have a candle lit dinner and dance in the dark. Whatever you do, just date!

Pray for your marriage. You should daily pray for your marriage, your husband and for you as a wife.

What is the great return of investing in your marriage?

The more you invest in your marriage, the better it is going to be. Simply put. If you don't water a plant, it dies. If you don't water your marriage, it dies.

As Christians, we are the bride of Christ. A good marriage is a glimpse into the love and life with Jesus.

Commit to making a wise investment and invest deeply into your marriage.
