“You are not my enemy”
When an enemy approaches we are on guard. Every movement could be the one that is meant to harm us. Every word must be analyzed through the filter of skepticism. This is how I treat my wife.
When we arrived home from our honeymoon in the western half of South Dakota (picture Mount Rushmore the Crazy Horse Memorial and lots of buffalo) we unpacked and drove 15 minutes to attend a marriage conference. Weekend To Remember is a conference hosted by Family Life, a phenomenal marriage ministry. The conference covers everything a couple needs to know to succeed in marriage. They discuss money, emotions, arguing, kids, romance, sex and personality differences. Of the 15 hours of conference time I remember one moment more than any other. They instructed us to turn toward our spouse, look in their eyes and say, “You are not my enemy” . It seemed silly at the time but it would prove to be one of the most important moments in my married life. It may be the reason I still have a married life.
