Mowing the Grass

We went to a marriage conference this past weekend and one of the audience members had a great analogy about working on your relationship.

He said that if you put off mowing the grass when it needs be mowed it eventually gets very tall and hard to mow. You have to go slower to mow and work a lot harder at it. Once you get it mowed back down to a normal height it is pretty easy to keep it mowed.

It is the same way in relationships. If we let all of our relationship issues pile up and never deal with them, it can be quite hard to work through them when we finally do try to tackle them. If we work on our relationship issues a little at a time as they come up, they don’t get so bad. His recommendation was to keep the grass mowed!
