“There’s a direct correlation between the accuracy of our memory and the effectiveness of our mission. If we’re not teaching people how to be saved, it’s perhaps because we’ve forgotten the tragedy of being lost. If we’re not teaching the message of forgiveness, it may be because we don’t remember what it was like to be guilty. And if we’re not preaching the cross, it could be that we’ve subconsciously decided that—God forbid—somehow we don’t need it.” – Max Lucado
Max Lucado has a much deeper message about remember Jesus Christ when times get hard or fear creeps in; however these words reminded me how easily we can overlook our marriage. If we are not pursuing our wives, it may be because we don’t remember what it was like to be without her. It is easy to say that we would have regrets if it all came to an end tomorrow; and then we do very little about it.
What would you miss? Make a list. Share it with your wife; and the makes those changes today.
Be Strong. Act Like Men.
