Fighting for Healthy Priorities: Embracing Your Limitations

October 17, 2017

Keeping healthy priorities are a constant battle for modern marriages. By default we tend to our priorities in life and marriage as linear, or as a list:

  1. God
  2. Family
  3. Others

While this list isn't necessarily bad, we believe there's a better way.

In today's episode of the Fierce Marriage Podcast, we discuss a new way of looking at priorities that has revolutionized our marriage and transformed how we live our lives. We start the conversation by looking at two themes in Scripture:

  • Our finitude as humans
  • Our call as believers.

Join in as we chip away at this massive truth to be had about priorities in light of the gospel.
