The word cherish not in our daily vocabulary. In fact, I have probably used it in reference to someone’s name more in the past five years than I have in its verb form (I know a couple of women named Cherish). One of the things that I do not like about our current generation is that we seem to have a limited vocabulary. Thankfully though, Cherish by Gary Thomas is not about our limited vocabulary and an attempt to expand it, but rather it is a guide for us to cherish our spouse.
The word is used in a lot of wedding vows, but I do not think that we often think about what it actually means. We ought to cherish our spouse. We should make them feel like they are the only one in the world for us, because they are. We need to recognize our own flaws when it comes to our relationship and work to better them. At least with authors like Thomas, we do not have to go far before we can gain wisdom that we can apply to our life.
I am sure that Thomas does not believe that he holds all of the answers, but I am confident that he holds quite a few. Marriages would be better if we were to read and apply his writings. They are not as much of a self-help book as they are ones that are filled with truth in Christ that can be used to make our marriages better. If you have found yourself in a marriage, now is the time to make it the best it can be.
