Heading into a new year, What is your problem ? What is your issue? More specifically, how do you contribute to the problems in your marriage? Pretty tough question. But what does your relationship look like if you answer the question and then work on fixing it?
All of us – both husbands and wives – have challenges that we face, “things” that we bring to the marriage. It is so easy to list out, sometimes with a long list, what are spouse struggles with. And, it might even be accurate. However, when we can look at ourselves and make personal change, we can see big changes in the health of our marriage.
So spend sometime today thinking about it, What is your problem? And as you do, meditate on this passage from Matthew 7:1-5 (ESV) “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
