The Green Grass Syndrome


At Edwin and Diana’s wedding yesterday, Pastor Ming concluded with a word which really spoke to me:

After we get married, we sometimes wonder if we could have done better, if there was someone better for us. We always think that the grass is greener on the other side – but you know what, that is not true. The grass is greener where you choose to water and nurture it.

Once you’ve made a choice, the commitment then lies upon the couple to make sure that the grass in your own lawn is continually nurtured and healthy.

What Pastor said caused me to think more, not just about relationship, but about many other situations in our lives.

Do we struggle in our own circumstances and wish we were in other circumstances? Or do we really focus on making our own situation better?
