If we’re honest, in our modern society, the marital union has become about finding someone who can make you happy and help to improve your overall life status. Hundreds of dating apps are created around being connected with the person who will be the perfect fit for your lifestyle and desires. However, a holy matrimony takes the concept of serving one another and the Lord as the most important aspect. 

Although there is an element of wanting to be fiscally responsible before getting married, holy matrimony is not selfish by nature and seeking to gain. Instead, the focus is on building a home that honors God. When both people are committed to doing so, it can be expected that the Lord will bring the finances and the love and grace needed to sustain the couple for years to come.

Marriage is not mainly about prospering economically,” says John Piper in This Momentary Marriage, “it is mainly about displaying the covenant-keeping love between Christ and his church. Knowing Christ is more important than making a living. Treasuring Christ is more important than bearing children. Being united to Christ by faith is a greater source of marital success than perfect sex and double-income prosperity.”
