“Should Christ or your spouse meet your needs?” This is a question every married person must answer. Fortunately, the answer is an easy one: Jesus Christ. Most people don’t have to be married very long to recognize that their husband or wife will disappoint them at times.
Marriage is a gift. God wants our relationship with our spouse to provide us with joy and blessing. But regardless of how committed our spouse is to Christ, he or she is still a sinner. Every husband or wife will fail to meet our needs at various times. God wants us to enjoy our marriages, but looking to our spouse the joy, contentment, and peace that only Christ can provide will inevitably lead to discouragement at times.
