One of the best marriage books I’ve read is Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas. In it, he asks, What if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy?” What a good and challenging question. Even as one who is happily married, I can see the wisdom behind the question. (I’m sure my wife can, too!)

As Thomas explains, This isn’t a book that seeks to tell you how to have a happier marriage. This is a book that looks at how we can use the challenges, joys, struggles, and celebrations of marriage to draw closer to God and to grow in Christian character.”

Re-reading the book recently, I was struck by the many parallels with money. In fact, wouldn’t it be helpful to live with this question in mind: What if God designed money to make us holy more than to make us happy?
