What do you think is one of the biggest threats to marriages today?
I’ll get us started …
To be honest, I think there are a lot of things threatening our marriages today. In fact, sadly, there are too many to list here, but I will highlight one that I think is extremely important and under the radar.
Selfishness. It’s one that many of us don’t even think about, but it’s like an epidemic taking over our culture. Everything is about “me, me, me.” This self-centered, selfish attitude is literally 180 degrees from where our minds and hearts should be in a marriage. Healthy, thriving marriages require each spouse to be selfless. 1 Corinthians 13:5 says that love is not “self-seeking.” When we focus on my happiness, my comfort, my needs, my desires, we stop loving our spouse and start loving ourselves in a childish, immature, and destructive way. Selfishness is one of the most dominant marriage killers out there.
Okay, it’s your turn!
