Those who follow this blog know I love CCEF (Christian Counseling and Education Foundation). I wanted to share this 15 minute video with you by David Pawlison. I know 15 minutes is a long time when you’re used to reading 3-5 minutes reading. I really think will be helpful, though.
If you’re married, this may help you (as it did me) to better understand why God often brings opposites together in marriage — and how to navigate those times when you want to have a leisurely talk (usually the wife) and your spouse wants to unwind by watching a movie (usually the husband).
If you’re single, exposing yourself to this kind of insight can help you avoid the often unrealistic expectations about marriage. What a blessing this can be in your future!
As Mr. Pawlison says: “We need a vision of marriage that recognizes that marriage brings people together who, by nature, don’t know how to love.”
Wow. What comfort. I can only love Benny with God’s help. Apart from Him I will love myself more than anyone! But with God’s empowering help I’m learning to love him more. And, yes, that means we watch more movies than I would like. But he’s learning to talk more than he would like, too!
