Christian Morgenstern, a German poet, wrote, “Home is not where you live, but where they understand you.” How true this is for marriage! You will make your marriage your home by growing in understanding of each other’s needs and helping one another meet them. As Christians we learn compassion from the example of Jesus. Through the practice of your faith, you will be touched by Christ’s healing mercy. From Jesus you will learn to make your marriage your home, the place where you and your children will taste the goodness of God’s mercy. Then the warmth of your home will radiate, and everyone around you will be touched by God’s mercy and compassion.
