Phillipians 2:3 Don’t do anything for selfish purposes, but with humility think of others as better than yourselves.
It is human nature to think "Im right." And if someone else (ie. our spouse)thinks differently, we automatically think "They're wrong." This is the origin of a whole lotta' troubles when it comes to trying to build a thriving marriage.
Serving on the pastoral team of Kings Park International Church, my husband and I have the privilege of helping to strengthen marriages. Often leading 'small group' book discussions, we've read LOTS of books, But the most recent, "Love and Respect' has proven to stand head and shoulders above them all!
One of it's many gems is that a couple can make huge strides toward solidarity when they embrace this truth: My spouse is not wrong, just different. The author, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, expounds on the reality of men and women's different perspectives. Women 'see pink.' Men see 'blue.'She is not 'wrong' for seeing pink. She is simply different from blue. "His blue view is not wrong for being blue. He is simply different from pink."
Like most profound thoughts, it's elegantly simple and deeply true.
