Davidisms: Be Careful of "Slurpee Marriages"

You can almost hear the sound of someone drinking a slurpee. The classic, large drink many love to “slurp” down. In big, slushy gulps. With the last gulp bringing the loudest slurp!

A slurpee is delicious as a drink. But it’s disastrous in a marriage.

What is a “slurpee” marriage? It’s when one person in a marriage continues drinking from the other. Until the end, when the large “slurp” shows that the drink - in this case, the spouse - is empty. Done. Emotionally spent.

Your spouse will never meet the deepest longings of your heart. No mortal being can. Not even your beloved husband or wife.

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4). Taking delight in the Lord means seeking our peace and fulfillment in him. And only in him. When we do so, our desires will begin aligning with his desires. And our deepest longings will be fulfilled by him. Not our spouses.

Make Jesus your life (Colossians 3:4). He will meet the needs of your heart.

Then you can enjoy your spouse the way God intended. To share all the days of your life.
