I haven’t really shared this anywhere, but my wife and I are just getting out of a difficult season in our marriage. We weren’t in major trouble or on the brink of divorce, but we were going through one of those valleys in our relationship where we both needed to step up and work on our marriage.
So for the last year or so, I’ve put a lot of effort into trying to be a good husband – the husband that God calls me to be.
What a great and holy desire, right?
But it wasn’t, in my case.
I went about it the wrong way. And the mistake I made is a great illustration for how we can get off-course in attempting to be good stewards of our time.
