Elder Renlund Shares One Crucial Question Every LDS Husband and Wife Should Think About


In a recent Facebook post, Elder Renlund shared 1 Corinthians 11:11 and discussed the importance of one question he says ". . . each husband and wife would benefit from pondering." He wrote:

"Recently I have had the opportunity to officiate in the temple sealing of four wonderful couples. As I prepared for these wonderful experiences, I found myself pondering 1 Corinthians 11:11, 'Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.'
I have found myself thinking about what 'in the Lord' means within a marriage relationship. This is a question that each husband and wife would benefit from pondering.
For me, it means that Ruth and I will be stronger as we center our relationship on the teachings, example, and love of Jesus Christ. As we each work to become more like the Savior, we will learn to love each other more and become more unified. It is a lifelong goal—it is actually an eternal goal—and it is well worth the effort."
