    Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
    By: Betsy St. Amant Haddox

    Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor. - 1 Corinthians 10:24

    Marriage is between two different people—obviously. But sometimes, it can seem as if marriage is between two very different people. The old adage "opposites attract" proves true more often than not. That's what keeps things interesting! You might not argue as much if you were married to someone just like you, but it would sure make your life boring if you were.

    I personally believe God matches up couples that are opposites in order to bring sanctification to each party. Our spouses tend to sand down our rough edges and round out our sharp corners. This process isn't typically conflict-free or painless, but its often necessary for our holiness. Think how'd selfish we'd become if we weren't having to frequently die to self and honor our spouse.

    Maybe your differences are simple. Perhaps he likes to hunt you and you like to read, so on Saturdays, you curl up with a good book while he curls up in a tree stand. But have you ever thought about going with him? (I know, I know) Seriously though, extending an invitation to your spouse to join you, or accepting their invitation to join them, is a significant act of love and selflessness in a marriage.

    Maybe you like basketball games and he'd rather do anything else than watch people dribble a ball down a court. Or perhaps it's the difference of one of you is a homebody, and the other wants to be social and go on double-dates every weekend.

    Who ends up compromising the most?
