Great Marriage

We are up at Odell Lake Lodge this weekend for a marriage retreat for our church.  I get to do some teaching here at it and it is a lot of fun. I get to tell stories about our marriage and how we have grown in our relationship over the years. We have been married for 48 years, and my humble opinion is that we have the best marriage in the world. It hasn’t always been good, but we have both wanted it to be great, so we have consistently worked at it and worked diligently at learning the principles and skills that it takes to have a really good marriage. We learned most of what know from others who have good marriages, and there have been many over the years much better than ours that we could learn from.  There are 29 couples up here all wanting to grow in the quality of their marriage, and it is so encouraging to hang around these couples who want to grow and improve. It is like so many other areas of life, if you seek wisdom diligently you will find it, and you find it primarily from other people. The primary requirement to get wisdom is humility, that is you have to be willing to learn from others. God is apposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
