ROMANTIC CONFLICT: EMBRACING DESIRES THAT BLESS NOT BRUISE
THE GOSPEL FOR REAL LIFE SERIES
Author: Brad Hambrick
Few marriages fall apart because the spouses have evil desires. But even the good desires of two well-meaning people do not always match up. Our limited time and resources mean that fulfilling one person’s desires often results in neglecting another’s, which can lead to conflict and bitterness. So how do we enjoy the blessings of marriage without being consumed by our desire for those blessings we prefer? Brad Hambrick shows us that Jesus addressed this very issue—in his foundational call to be a disciple, no less. In this plan for biblically dealing with marital conflict, he walks us through Jesus’ words and their implications, outlines a typical marital conflict, gives us strategies for how to “interrupt” our conflicts with grace and love, and gives us further tips on how to reignite romance going forward.
