At lunch I watched a portion of the USA vs. China volleyball match. The Chinese women had the USA down 11-7, and then something unprecedented happened: the USA team went on a 23-5 run to end the set.
To explain the domination, the broadcaster said, “Good teams make adjustments.” While the Chinese coach simply watched the carnage, the American coach constantly made adjustments via substitutions and strategy that would help his team be most effective.
You can easily apply this to marriage. If you and your spouse are going to be a good team in marriage, you’re both going to have to make multiple adjustments over the life of the marriage. As the Nationwide commercial used to say, “Life comes at you fast.” Because of this, adjustments are necessary if you plan to keep winning and get the most out of your marriage.
Don’t be afraid of making adjustments in your marriage — it’s necessary to keep your marriage working well. After all, good teams make adjustments.
