What was the inspiration for this series?
I usually like to give the background of a podcast to put the message in some form of context. There were two things that inspired this series. One of our listeners had mentioned that she was on her third and her new husband on his second marriage and they had wanted to make their marriage work. She mentioned that she would like to get her husband listening to the podcast, but was not sure how. This got us thinking on this subject, but we did not have the time to really dig into it at the time she asked it.
Then, Andy Stanley’s recent series, Ask It, brought up an interesting point when it came to seeking the counsel of others. One of the thrusts of his message was don’t let your pride prevent you from listening to wise counsel.
