Five Differences Between Healthy and Unhealthy Marriages
What’s different about healthy a marriage? And more importantly, what can you do to strengthen your marriage for the long run?
We compared LifeSigns data from thousands of marriages and found five major differences. We’ve listed them in order, from the smallest difference to the largest difference.
Impact of Relational Intimacy on Giving
Question: Is there a relationship between relational health and GIVING in local churches? Short Answer: Yes. And it's huge.
People in healthy non-church relationships, intimate small groups, and strong marriages GIVE at a level they feel good about 43%-133% more often.
Impact of Relational Intimacy on Serving
Question: Is there a relationship between relational health and SERVING in local churches? Short Answer: Absolutely. And again, it's large.
People in healthy non-church relationships, intimate small groups, and strong marriages SERVE weekly or monthly 54%-157% more often.
New Eyes: What's different about people with a heart for the lost?
Out of 55 different factors, the number one difference among those who “frequently” or “consistently” have a heart for the lost is not Bible study, not small group attendance, not serving in the church, or even being willing to reach out to strangers. The single biggest difference is daily intimacy with Christ.
