Last week, I shared about describing minor characters and how we shouldn’t let these opportunities pass us by. This week, I wanted to dive deep into how our protagonists (and antagonists) describe themselves.

“We learn to love imperfect people by serving them out of reverence for a perfect God...”
Gary Thomas

“If we accept that the love of praise is a sin, that the lust to be known and appreciated by others is not just a fool's errand...but perhaps evidence of a heart focused on the wrong things, our marriages will be transformed.”
Gary Thomas, A Lifelong Love: Devotional

“What is more likely to lead to true marital satisfaction-getting a fallen spouse to change his or her ways, or changing your own focus so that you draw affirmation from a God who never disappoints, never turns you away?”
Gary Thomas, A Lifelong Love: Devotional

“I am dedicated to the preservation of my marriage's unity.”
Gary Thomas, A Lifelong Love: Devotional

“Marriage isn't about rights as much as it is about revelation.”
Gary Thomas, A Lifelong Love: Devotional
