Scrolling through my Instagram newsfeed yesterday, I came across a post by Heather Lindsey where she shared that it isn’t about the game, the coffee, the cup of juice, but about the person you you did all those things with. To add to this, I’ll say it’s also about the bond you share while spending time together.
Time is a priceless gift you’ll give to your spouse particularly if their love language is quality time. Everyone wants to have a sense of importance where every other thing is put on the back burner and they’re taken as priority.
The thing about this love language is not about the quantity—number of hours. You can spend long hours with your spouse with no connection. You could sit together, but your attention is on something else—gadgets, the next item on your to-do list, the baby in the bassinet, etc.
Quality time may be short but it goes deep. The little time spent will be treasured and looked forward to.
How can you achieve quality time with your spouse?
- Make it a priority in your marriage.
- Put away the distractions—TV, phones, work.
- Block out a particular time you want to be with your spouse. It could be once or twice a week.
- Be in the moment. Spend the time with your spouse not with something else running through your mind while you wait for the clock to tick off.
- Have a conversation with your spouse.
Jesus at the center makes the home godly and happy.
