“I’m hungry, where’s lunch? Why isn’t it ready?” “I don’t know! What’s wrong with your hands?” “Yes, I won that battle…one point for me,” you think to yourself. Remarks like these can be cute at first, but over time, they can act as knives, cutting your marriage into pieces.
“When we wound our partner, we handicap our marriage, and we inflict injury on ourselves in the process.” ~James Stuart Bell
God has brought us together to be on the same team, not two different teams…keeping record of rights and wrongs. I encourage you today to tear up the score card, forget about the one-word zingers, and become a team that gives honor to God, your marriage, and yourself!
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,it keeps no record of wrongs.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-5
