"Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace" - Ephesians 4:2-3 NLT
It's important to love our spouse, despite their faults. When we're feeling quick to insult, we should remember that no one is perfect.
One of the best ways we can love our spouse is to humble ourselves. Patience and kindness are a far better choice than belittling or criticizing.
Resist the urge to critique, and look for the value within your spouse. Ask the Holy Spirit for improved unity and understanding within your marriage.
Genuine praise and looking for opportunities to help your spouse can go a long way!
Real improvement within marriage always begins when we're willing to humble ourselves and seek the wisdom of God's word.
