It has been said many times, “We are so different!” Often conflict in a relationship stems from failing to understand and appreciate each other’s differences, distinctness, or uniqueness. However, couples need to recognize their God-given blending of differences as a blessing that leads to a greater fulfillment of life and completeness as a person. Use your differences to complement one another!

Questions to consider:

  • What are three things you appreciate about your partner?
  • How do your partner’s differences (strengths or weaknesses) irritate you?
  • How do your partner’s differences (strengths or weaknesses) help you?
  • For which of these differences have you thanked God?
