Christian Commitment - Franklin White

When dealing with inevitable disagreements and differences, Christian married couples would do well to put themselves in God's presence and reflect on the need to face issues with honesty. When a Christian couple sees that their marriage commitment centers on Christ, they can more easily address issues more wisely and on a much deeper level. This always involves a more mutual give and take and requires honest reflection and discussion. As each one of us searches within our selves for the understanding of God's grace in our marriage, it is characterized by selflessness, kindness, and commitment to seek the good of the beloved before oneself. It is true that all Christians can do the same. When we see Jesus as the center of our lives and recognize all people as our neighbors, we look to Jesus as the source of wisdom in addressing differences among colleagues, family, or friends. In doing this, we grow in an appreciation of our gifts and weaknesses.
