WHAT IS THE ‘SECRET’ TO DEVELOPING A GREAT MARRIAGE?
Marriage partners must always build up each other, never degrade or belittle or criticize each other. If marriage partners are intended to be each other’s ‘best friend’, then marriage partners should treat each other as ‘best friends’! Humor or jesting or teasing or laughing should never be used as ‘cruel tools’ to destroy marriage partners!
Partners in marriage are not to be in competition with each other. “In honor preferring each other” – this is to be the attitude that is manifested in a good marriage relationship! Only when the love of God is ‘shed abroad’ in the heart of each marriage partner, can each partner put the other partner before himself or before herself!
When each partner in the marriage is focused on pleasing Christ, then each marriage partner has the strong motivation and the deep desire to serve his or her marriage partner.
Loving God supremely enables the marriage partners to take delight in serving each other in the spirit of genuine love! Each partner becomes a ‘beautiful channel’ through which the divine-type love (agape) flows to the other partner. This is the ‘secret’ to developing a truly ‘great marriage’.
Without the ‘flow’ of that divine-type love, from each partner to the other partner, the marriage partners will be in selfish competition with one another, and, at worst, the marriage partners will become very self-centered (and often these selfish-driven individuals will divorce).
