  • What are some of the obstacles that couples face in making themselves sexually available to one another?
     
  • If you are married, what are the challenges you face, personally, in yielding authority over your body to your spouse?
     
  • How can couples work together to embody the idea: “It’s not about me; it’s not about you, it’s about us.”?
     
  • Paul writes that he wishes everyone were as he is – unmarried. Why do you think he makes that statement?
     
  • What are some of the benefits of being unmarried? How can individuals who remain single embrace the idea: “It’s not about me; it’s not about you, it’s about us.”?

Prayer: Pray for one another! Pray for married couples to glorify God in their marriage. Pray for unmarried adults to glorify God in their singleness.
