I am so sorry. Reflection for marriages: Matthew 8:18-22

Follow me
From the Gospel according to Matthew. Mt 8:18-22.
When Jesus saw a crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other shore.
A scribe approached and said to him, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.”
Jesus answered him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.”
Another of his disciples said to him, “Lord, let me go first and bury my father.” But Jesus answered him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead.”
The Gospel of the Lord.
I am so sorry.
It is common for us to desire stability—a setting where we feel comfortable and free from disturbances. However, the path of the Lord does not find stability in the comfort of a life without surprises; it seeks stability in remaining in God and being amazed every day by doing His will, guided by His Spirit.
Applied to married life:
Paula: If you could change somthing about me, what would you change? 
Greg: Nothing, absolutely nothing. 
Paula: But there are things that trouble you sometimes. 
Greg: But it’s not because of you. You are as God intended you to be. That is unsurpassable. And you, what would you change about me? 
Paula: Whatever God wants to change in you. Only He knows who you are called to be. For now, I quite like you. 
Greg: Just quite? 
Paula: Quite a bit more than you like me. 
Greg: No, I like you more. 
Paula: Look at us, we sound like a couple who can’t find the right moment to hang up. Haha. 
Greg: Haha. You hang up…

I don’t know why we intend to change our spouses when we are yet to discovered all of their greatness. God has given me so much, and I have not been able to appreciate it. I am so sorry.
