Couples of the Bible is a one-year devotional, which focuses on many different couples throughout the Bible. This devotional can be used in so many different ways. It can be used as a Bible study on couples throughout the Bible and what lessons they can teach us. Both individuals and couples can use this devotional to grow and enrich their relationship with God and with each other. I found this devotional to be especially inspiring for me in my own life to evaluate how I perform my position as God’s child and as a wife to my husband.
Each day during the week focuses on a different area of looking deeper into the specific couple and ourselves. Taking in each area day-by-day allows the teaching and reflection to soak within us.
I found Couples of the Bible to be more interesting and helpful to my own life than I originally expected. The way the book is written enables you to see each couple as real people, not just some character in a book. This devotional comes so packed full of tools, it was definitely not expected to find such treasures within. It has a story, the history and culture of that time, reflections on your own life, praises to God, thanks to God, truths from God’s Word to you, and prayer.
Every couple should have and actively use this book. I highly recommend it!
