Marriage and Family

Dewater 4

“Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart.” Proverbs 3:3

I don’t know about you, but I don’t always feel like being kind to my wife. (Sorry Honey!) Don’t get me wrong. I love my wife. I am thankful for her. I know this will be a shock to you, but… I don’t have it all together! In fact, just last evening I said something in a way to my wife that was not kind. I was frustrated and I allowed my feelings to override how I knew I should respond. And yes, I have asked her forgiveness and I have also asked for God’s forgiveness.

Kindness and Truth, as the verse above points out, are incredibly important to have a great relationship with your spouse.

How about you? Do you have it all together? I might be able to guess what the answer is…

You may not have it all together, but if you are willing to work on the two things above in the way you relate with your spouse, you can have a good marriage.

Practicing kindness goes a long way toward building intimacy with your spouse.

Practicing truthfulness goes a long way toward building trust with your spouse.

Intimacy and Trust are found in a marriage that is built on kindness and truth.

My encouragement for us this week: Practice kindness and truthfulness with your spouse this week!

Have a Great Week!
