27 Mar Easy Instead of Hard
MARRIAGE REPLENISHMENT TIP
Here’s another Marriage Replenishment Tip (MRT) that you can use to add, strengthen, or restore, any of the key components of your marriage that are either missing, weak, or in need of repair in your marriage.
If I am either mean, unloving, disrespectful, always complaining, generally sarcastic, or dwelling on pass hurts that (enter your spouse’s name) has already apologized for and corrected, I’m making it hard for (enter your spouse’s name) to do life with me.
This is not a good thing, which is why I choose to not let any of the above behaviors or similar behaviors, become a part of who I am. I choose to do differently because that’s what God commands. I choose to make it easier for (enter your spouse’s name) to do life with me rather than making it harder for (enter your spouse’s name) to do life with me.
Consider the following passages of scripture –
Ephesians 4:31-32 (ESV) – 31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. 32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Colossians 3:8-9 (ESV) 8 But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. 9. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices 10. and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.
