I am a firm believer that if you let life happen, life has a way of running you over. In fact, Matthew Henry said, “The way of sin is always downhill.” I like to put it like this:
There is no such position as neutral in the Christan life because sin and selfishness are like gravity. They are always working against us. Therefore, we are either moving upward or spiraling downward. There is really no in between.
Marriage is an Uphill Battle
It is true that marriage is an uphill battle, but so is everything else worthwhile in life. This is probably why Paul said that those that marry “shall have trouble in the flesh”. (I Corinthians 7:28)
Many seem to confuse the need for working on their marriage for a lack of true love in their relationship. However, I would say that the exact opposite is true in that those that work at their marital relationship manifest love in its truest form.
