“Behold, now have I known that you are a woman of beautiful appearance.”
~ Genesis 9:20
After decades of marriage, Abraham compliments his wife’s beauty.
While this is certainly good practice for a great marriage – why only now?
Because Abraham had never before looked at Sarah like this. Their modesty and mutual-respect positioned their relationship beyond physicality.
Sadly, many newly-weds drop their guard after the chuppah, believing the commitment frees them to be ‘themselves’ and permits any behaviour. As the anniversaries go by, things only get worse.
Learn to balance being ‘yourself’ without letting yourself go.
