“They’ve forgotten all about God…He’s the only reason we exist…” – George Harrison, from All Those Years Ago

It’s easy to forget about God. Our own egos can completely overshadow the owner of that still, small voice, and this is as true for Christians as it is for anyone else.

It’s particularly easy to do in church, when we can turn to the Scripture the pastor references, or bring up a Scriptural tag line to drop into a conversation. It’s fun to feel smart, but it raises up our own personalities that we can admire, ourselves.

And when we do, we also tend to overlook our own spouses. Marriage is a sacrament – our relationship with God writ small, but no less meaningful.

And it’s hard to see past, or through, the room full of mirrors that we build ourselves.
