"Everything of great value has a great cost." ~Thaddeus Eastland
I know so many men who want heaven without dying. However, you will NOT move into that happy and healthy relationship you want just as you are now. You must first decide what you are willing to sacrifice for THAT special partner because, I assure you, there is something great you need to surrender. That is, if you want something great.
Now, I urge you to read this post and then think about it for a moment. I can think of a number of things many men will have to surrender...
- Humility must replace pride
- Interdependence must replace independence
- The need to be "right" must give way to the need to compromise
- Self-centered thinking must give way to "us/we" thinking
- and on and on...
If you can't think of your sacrifice, pray. Ask the LORD what needs to be put on the altar. Nothing of great value comes cheap...and no sacrifice goes unrewarded. He who finds a wife, finds a good thing still. It will be worth it.
Adam had to give up a rib, but he got Eve. And to get Eve, he had to give up a rib. No sacrifice goes unrewarded. What do you need to give up so you can get the greater?
To your success,
