About This Episide

We live in Disneyland! In America, we can have almost anything we want at any time. We can order a car to pick us up on our doorstep. We can order food at 3 AM, and within minutes it’s delivered to our home, hotel, or AirBnB. We don’t even need to speak one syllable to another human being; we can do it all on our mobile phones. Our heart can have whatever it desires.

In marriage, when your contentment is being challenged, and you can see better options available to you, one response is to go and take what you want. Looking at all of the available choices and telling yourself things like, “I deserve better,” “Why am I putting up with bad behavior,” “I don’t have to do this any longer” are small justifications to an entitled heart. These justifications encourage you to cross a marital boundary and entertain the “green” grass in your neighbor’s yard.

God wants us to choose wisely, using His Word as our guide. When we decide to walk in God’s wisdom and grow through the process, we start watering our grass, and the growth that begins to happen eventually leads to a greater joy than what we were willing to settle for in our dissatisfaction and uncontendness.
