What do other people think about your marriage?
Not just acquaintances from church, but those who know you best.
Sometimes we have no idea the impression we are giving others.
Kind of like when we have a piece of spinach in our teeth. We just keep on talking and laughing while making those around us very uncomfortable…until a REAL friend stops and tells us what they see! Thankyouverymuch!
I’m not asking you to call your friends and get their opinions of your marriage but maybe you need to think about what impressions you are giving them about your marriage.
Sometimes we need to pull back from our own situations and think about what things are looking like from the outside because that can be a huge indicator of what’s actually going on-on the inside.
I challenge you to take a look at your marriage from other’s points of view and see what you think about it.
If your closest friends were to rate your marriage from 1-10, what would they say?
If the number is low, how could you raise it? Not just for people’s perception… I’m not talking about putting on an act for others…but really make some changes.
What other people think is not that important unless it is an indicator of something that truly needs to change in our hearts.
Work on the heart of the matter and the outside appearance will take care of itself.
I’m praying for our marriages, Sue
