Relationships are hard work.
The relationships that challenge us the most have the potential for the largest impact upon our lives. This is especially true of marriage, and I believe that this is an intentional part of God’s design. The Lord continually uses my marriage to mold, grow, stretch and humble me.
In many ways, marriage reflects the relationship between Christ and His Body, the Church. At its best, marriage is a living example of self-sacrifice and selfless love mutually exchanged for the benefit of the whole, to the glory of God.
At its worse, it is a picture of irate, misguided, and self-motivated people berating, beating and crucifying the one who loves them most.
Most marriages are somewhere in the middle, continually on the journey from one end of the spectrum to the other. Many married couples move back and forth between opposite ends more times than they would like to admit.
