The Grass Really Isn’t Greener…

I heard about a good-looking millionaire who married a plain-looking woman. It was the talk of the town. ‘Why did he marry her? She’s not up to his standard. It won’t last!’ When they came back from an extended honeymoon it looked like the millionaire was with another woman…one glowing with confidence and poise. ‘Now that’s the kind of wife he deserves,’ declared the town loud-mouth. Then she noticed something interesting: it was the same woman – completely transformed! Her new husband had taken her away, encouraged her…and built up her self-confidence until she started to see in herself what he’d always seen. So instead of looking for something different or better in someone else, start looking for the good in your spouse. Speak encouraging words…acknowledge their efforts to improve…become their cheerleader. The Bible says, ‘Love…protects…trusts…hopes…perseveres’ (1Co 13:4&7 NIV). Instead of making comparisons, ask God to help you see your mate like you once did.’”
