“When you have done all you have been commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants; we have done what we were obliged to do.’” (LK 17: 10)
What we are obliged to do? Go to work? Pray? Take care of our children? Or—take care of our relationship? to spend a good quality time together? You are a married couple; you are called to be spouses—this is the first and the most important obligation. Prayer, work, and parenting are also important, but, depending on your main vocation, you pray as a husband and wife, you work as a husband and wife, you are parents because you are husband and wife. First things first.
“Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him.” (Gospel Acclamation)
