Responsibility & Formation
As we build on the So You Said I Do Marriage series we deep dive into the area that I think can change a marriage most quickly and most noticeably. No, it’s not “what your partner needs to hear….” It is about you and making a choice to take full personal responsibility for our attitudes and actions.
The bible begins and ends with a perfect marriage. That’s the last of them. My marriage, your marriage and all our relationships are in some way broken. Brokenness, as this message outlines, can adversely affect a marriage. When we live out of smallness of spirit, fear and insecurity, we are tempted to deny God the role and pleasure of being our all in all. We then learn un-resourceful and unhelpful behaviours that simply do not serve and bring life to our Marriage.
There is hope. Take full responsibility for your own attitudes and actions. Do the work to be validated personally. Get you insides right, so to speak. Bring your whole (and healing) self back to your marriage, family and relationships to serve and invest in their future.
Do the personal work, it’s worth it.
