I love this quote from Garrett Higbee:
“we have to have a funeral for ourselves before we have a marriage with our spouse”
The point of that quote is that when we are involved in a relationship, our mindset towards our self must change. If we are going to make our relationship work, we have to be considerate of the other person’s needs, even before our own.
Ouch! Now that is convicting.
How are you doing in this area? Are you demanding in getting your own needs, or are you intentional about trying to understand and meet the needs first of your partner giving priority to them?
