Have Serious Fun

Is having fun and intimacy in your marriage essential, or is it extra? Sure, we all like fun and intimacy. But it’s easy to think that other things in our lives are more important—things like work, kids, and chores. 

But here is the good news: God views fun and intimacy in our marriage as essential. We find these views in Proverbs 5, which was authored by Solomon.

But Solomon’s wisdom is not based on his human ability. In fact, Solomon’s own life wasn’t a great example of marriage. But the principles and the truths that God spoke through Solomon are wise all the same.

In Proverbs 5, Solomon is warning his son to protect himself and his marriage by staying away from adultery. For 17 verses Solomon tried to scare the pants on his son.

He gave him all the don’ts then he gave him a couple of do’s.

He encourages his son to be captivated with his wife, to rejoice in her always, and be delighted in her. 

In other words, one of the best ways to protect your marriage is to enjoy it.  

You see, the good news is that fun and intimacy is not extra for your marriage—they are essential… helping you to become… YOUR BEST US..

‘Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice in the wife of your youth. Let them be yours alone And not for strangers with you. As a loving hind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; Be exhilarated always with her love. ‘ PROVERBS 5:17-19
