Episode 54: How do I balance my needs/desires with the needs/desires of my spouse without one of us being selfish?

Episode highlights:

  • It is not inherently selfish to want something; a desire becomes selfish when I insist on it. 1 Cor 13:5
  • I should be more concerned about what the Lord commands me to do than what He commands others to do. Matt 7:3-5
  • God gives to both spouses unconditional commands to give.  Eph 5:22-25
  • The commonly held meet-in-the-middle ethic for marriage is a recipe for disaster.
  • Quality time is not a preference issue and should be pursued for the health of the marriage.
