We heard an interesting story recently. When the Spanish explorer Cortes lead his expedition into Mexico to conquer the Aztec nation, he was concerned about the fear and reticence of his soldiers to fight the numerous and fierce Aztecs. So he did something very smart and very decisive. He gathered his men on the shore and then set fire to his ships in the harbor. The Spanish soldiers no longer vacillated in their purpose. They were committed — because they had to be. And they realized victory, even though they were greatly outnumbered.
That’s commitment! When we, as Christian couples, decisively remove all options except permanency...when we burn our ships...something happens to our attitudes. We become adamantly determined to make our marriage work. And that’s what God meant for marriage to be - a permanent, exclusive and loving union depicting Christ and His Church. Anything less mars that picture.
When we share our failures with each other, we unmask them and defeat their power over us.
