What is the most hopeful word in history? For Billy Graham, that word is salvation. Salvation from what? From our selfish and self-destructive selves. From the messes we get ourselves into. From the sin that has haunted humanity from the beginning of time and the evil that pulls us down every day. From the cultural deceits that blind us to God's saving message. From the hell so many don't believe in. If we don't think we need salvation, we're fooling ourselves. If we think we are beyond salvation, we're underestimating God. If we just don't want to think about salvation, we're putting ourselves in eternal peril.
Life struggles can bring out the worst in marriage and dating relationships. Communication breaks down, feelings get hurt, and you just want to escape a painful situation. But in the worst of times, even when you don't think the other person deserves it, there's a reason why it makes sense to be compassionate and considerate. Join Brett Clemmer as he encourages us to navigate the difficult times in our marriages (and other relationships) with love and gentleness.
The Big Idea: Communication will not resolve every conflict. But no conflict can be resolved without it.
