RADIO PROGRAM NO. 340 - Freeing Marriage from Resentment

[The speaker is Michael Thorneloe. The questioner is Robert McKinnon.]

Questioner: I think many, if not most, young couples would like to free their marriage of resentment. But when hurts accumulate, many find that they just don't know what to do. Some turn to such techniques as talking it out, but is this enough?
Speaker: Certainly talking it out indicates a willingness to listen to the other point of view, which is fine. It's fine to be willing to talk things over, to hear an apology, to be more considerate one toward another. But something more than just personal adjustment or accommodation is necessary.

Every marriage has to deal with this in some way. And I know that my wife and I have found it's a tremendous help to realize that it isn't what we hear humanly —whether it's good or bad—but what we prayerfully listen to about man's true nature that enables us to resolve any sense of resentment in marriage.
