If you want true intimacy and connection with a woman, you’ll need to grow up and graduate from God’s school of character. Few men would ever embark on an important project, a significant career change, or a major athletic challenge without gathering all the tactical knowledge possible to ensure a good outcome. Yet, when it comes to relationships with women, most men fail to apply the simple principles that make them successful in other areas of life. It may be easy to get into a relationship with a woman, but it’s not so easy to make the relationship work well. It takes energy. It demands effort. It requires education and understanding. God is available to help. But there’s a catch: God’s man must connect with God’s purposes before he can truly connect with his wife (or wife-to-be). God uses the marriage relationship to promote growth in men’s lives, because it shows us our character gaps and drives us to Him for solutions.
