I wonder if there is a husband living today, that has ever successfully negotiated with his wife.
I thought about this and came to a certain conclusion. The Christian life is not really negotiating your preference but rather honoring Christ. Jesus said, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20 KJV).
When self is at the center of my negotiations, Christ is never honored.
