Contract vs. Covenant

A covenant is a sacrificial, permanent relationship. It says, “I am going to surrender my rights and assume responsibilities.” But a contract is marked by self-protection. It says, “I’m going to protect my rights and limit my responsibilities.”

A contract is superficial and temporary. A covenant is strong, deep, and lasting. In the marriage covenant, we say, “For better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness or in health, until death do us part.” That’s serious. Contracts get broken when tough times hit, but covenant relationships stand strong.

You’re all in.  It’s the rock on which you build your marriage.

Enough said.
