Speaking of Marriage

Jennifer and I attended a marriage seminar graciously provided to us at our church. The speaker was Paul Tripp, president of Paul Tripp Ministries, in Philadelphia, PA. I highly recommend his style, methodology and content for getting to the core of having a great marriage, and all relationships, really.
One of the most salient points was that fights and quarrels come from within each person's heart, and to deal with it by repentance of being your own "king/queen" of your world. Submit to Christ, the real King!
Tripp also gave a freeing portrayal of belivers in marriage being smack dab in the middle of God's plan for sanctification in that relationship. Yes, with all the "incompatibilities" and different wiring and personalities, God is still the awesome creator who makes it all come together as a symphony of his redemptive grace if we are willing for him to do so.
