Dealing with Rough Edges
Guest post by Ken Wyatt on how marriage helps smooth rough edges.
Those Rough Edges
Spending some time with family members around a breakfast table one morning, we were discussing our various personality types – as they have revealed themselves over years of marriage.
It occurred to me, during that conversation, that my own rough edges would be far rougher, were it not for the mellowing effect of two things: 1) The steady companionship of my wife, and 2) the work of God in the inner man.
Not everyone has that experience within marriage. At least half of the time, the experience is otherwise, and divorce is the extreme muting of the rough edges on both sides.
All I am suggesting is that marriage can be the most profoundly life-changing tool the Creator ever devised.
