The Big Picture

Many years ago, my husband Ken and I had a doozy of an argument over something really small. 

What’s the big picture? Hi, I’m Joni. Many years ago, my husband Ken and I had a doozy of an argument over something really small. After we apologized, we wondered what made us argue about that?! The issue was so meaningless compared to the larger issues of life. So after that quarrel, Ken and I promised we would do our best to always remember the big picture. Satan hates—he despises—Christian marriage. And he’ll use anything to his advantage—even an argument over, well, over where to eat. That happened to Ken and me recently while traveling. We disagreed over restaurants and were growling at each other. Finally Ken said, “Joni, what’s the big picture?” And with that the anger dissipated. We both know the big picture is always Jesus. It’s His reputation at stake in what we say and how we act. And friend, what is true for me and my husband is true for you. Remember the big picture.
