The Road to a Great Marriage

The key that unlocks the door to a happy marriage is learning to serve your spouse! Most of us would admit that we entered marriage with lofty visions of how happy our spouses would make us. When they did not perform, we experienced disappointment, hurt, and anger. So, we made verbal demands designed to make them feel guilty. Have you ever said this, “I don’t understand how you could do that. You know how it makes me feel.” With such statements we try to manipulate their behavior. We try to get what we want. This approach is totally opposite of what Jesus taught. “Whoever wants to be great must be your servant.” Is this not the theme of the Christian life? Learning to serve your spouse is the true road to greatness.
