Two sinners become one flesh, exposing selfish tendencies.
Marriage is a humbling adventure. Set aside your pride and accept that two are better than one God made you lacking just enough to keep you dependent on Him and thankful for your partner. Your limitations are, perhaps, a great gift from Him. You want Him to remove the load when He wants you to share the load.
Your limitations point out your need for Christ. It is in the marriage relationship that heavy loads become lighter and limitations are not flaws but are opportunities to esteem others higher than yourself and let experiences reap godly wisdom.
Don’t hide your need, your vulnerabilities, or your despair. Let the comfort of love train your heart to better love your mate.
ECCLESIASTES 4:12 – NIV
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
