Bible Verses About Marriage

"Picture your marriage as a grassy field. You look out into the future and you see beautiful flowers and trees and rolling hills. But before long, you begin to step in cow pies. These are the sins and flaws and annoying habits in you and your spouse. The combination of forbearance and forgiveness leads to the creation of a compost pile…you say to each other…there is more to this relationship than cow pies. Let’s throw them all in the compost pile. Our hands may be dirty. And our backs make ache from all the shoveling. This is the gift of grace that we will give each other again and again and again." John Piper
