Where do mushrooms grow? On top of decay and in the darkness. Our secrets are like that. Our secrets create shame that decay our souls and grow in the darkness of secrecy. Secrets between a husband and wife build a wall of guilt and shame right down the middle of your relationship. Wherever secrets live, intimacy dies. As long as you keep the secrets in the dark, they will keep you from giving and receiving intimacy in relationships.
Yet the inverse is true—wherever intimacy lives, secrets die. Today’s message is a call to wide-open communication. To love our spouse with an authentic and transparent intimacy.
BIG IDEA: Where secrets live, shame grows and intimacy dies.
