  • You’re a talker; your son isn’t. You’re a saver, your wife isn’t. You’re have to-do lists, but your dating partner can't find her keys. Why does God make us so different? I think to force us outside ourselves. Think of it this way. If you’re a flaming extrovert and your spouse an introvert, neither of you is “wrong.” But both of you have to moderate who you are in order to serve the other. I move my personality closer to yours, you toward mine, and we both lose ourselves in order to find us.

Ron: How do you love someone different than you—I mean really different?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: You’re a talker; your son isn’t. You’re a saver, your wife isn’t. You’re organized and have lists of to-do lists, but your dating partner couldn’t find her keys if her life depended on it. Why does God make us so different? I think to force us to get outside ourselves.

Think of it this way. If you’re a flaming extrovert and your spouse an introvert, neither of you is “wrong.” But both of you have to moderate who you are in order to serve the other. I move my personality closer to yours, you toward mine, and we both lose ourselves in order to find us. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
