As you embark on a new relationship, there are many things you’d like to know about your partner. But there are many things that don’t just crop up in idle conversation.Or at other times you just want to have some fun with your lover and are curious to know what he’ll say in response to something. Has the spiritual temperature of our relationship been rising or falling through the years? Who enjoys sacrificing and serving more, you or me? What would be your reservations regarding his character? Do you sense that your gifts and talents threaten me as a leader? When you have a strong gift in a certain area, do I honor you by allowing your opinions to dominate my decision making in that area? Do I allow for your weaknesses, as I do my own, and lovingly make up for them with my strengths, or do I generally judge you for them? Do you feel free to confront sin in my life, or am I so offended when you do that youd rather not bother? Who is inconvenienced more often in our relationship, you or me? Who is the chief servant in our family, the best example of servanthood? Lets say our pastor said to you, I want to nominate your husband as deacon (or elder). Or do you feel that youre carrying the heaviest load of responsibility regarding our marriage and family? Do I make room to allow your personal gifts and your ministries to blossom? Do I understand my role in the breakdown, and am I working actively on it? Who has the greater knowledge of the Word of God, you or me? Are there character flaws in me that Ive been slow to address? What does this reveal to you about my love for you?
In your opinion, what creates the most impasses between us? In these impasses, do I break the ties in my favor most of the time? In my decisions, do I respect and honor your soul essence as I do my own?
