Teach Me Lord

I pride plateaus in learning but a teachable heart continues to scale the mountain of truth. Are you willing to learn about your spouse’s needs and not take offence when you learn that you are not meeting them? Needs fulfilled in a marriage are vitally important. You first need to create a safe place in your marriage to be open and honest with each other – naked conversations. 

James 1:5 (ESV) – If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

Understanding and meeting each other’s needs is a critical step towards a healthy relationship. Men and women’s needs are different. God designed us so that we would learn how to be selfless together, so that we would be an example to the world of His great love. When our focus is not on our needs but on our spouse’s needs we honour the Lord. Trust the Lord to help you be selfless, to love each other the way He has called us to, and He will help us to meet each other’s needs.

Matthew 19:26 (NKJV) – But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
