on Marriage

On Marriage.  There is a principle that I have come to believe in when thinking of marriage and what it takes to be successful at it.  It is the principle or the practice of "common goals."

The issue may be finances, the issue may be children, vacation, how much to spend on college, curfews, or any number of things.  For a married couple to remain sane, you must find common goals.  That requires sitting down and hashing through the issue until you find a position that you can both agree on.

What is the issue?  Where are we at on it?  What is our compromise?  Our common goal?  Then you move for it.  Together.  Marriage is us moving toward a goal - together.

Things go better with common goals.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.

I think you should do a sermon series on this, and/or relationships in general! :-)
