Recently I listened to a conversation about marriage counseling. One man was telling of a couple that was so bitter and angry with one another they couldn’t be in the same room together. He wanted to help them work on reconciling but had to try something other than his usual method of having them sit and listen to one another.
One of the men said, “Imagine a triangle with God being the top point and the man and woman being the bottom two points. If the man and woman were to draw closer to God they would automatically be drawn closer to each other.” Can you see it? As each of the bottom two points moved toward the top point they would have to get closer to each other based on how a triangle is shaped.
This is what the counselor did. Rather than have them together he decided to lead each of them in a Bible study separately. As time went by, and each of them became more and more intimate with God, strangely enough they grew closer to each other. I thought this was too cool. You see the key is always our relationship with God. Once that’s established our relationships with each other will take care of themselves.
