Prejudice is a heart problem. We adopt sinful attitudes towards others and recognizing them is the first step towards removing the blinders and—with God’s help—begin seeing the truth.
Your commitment is what binds you and your spouse together for better or for worse...richer or poorer...in sickness and health.
“Troth” isn’t a word we often use. It’s a solemn pledge made at the altar between a bride and a groom, a pledge to remain faithful to one another. Maybe it’s a word we should start using again.
Misunderstandings can easily lead to broken relationships. Before this happens do your best to come to a resolution. Then graciously forgive. And move on.
Our actions should match our words. It’s only when we’re honest with ourselves and with God can we begin to overcome hypocrisy.
If you’re jealous or overprotective of your spouse you risk smothering. True honouring is the opposite—honouring allows your spouse to be free to be his or her own person.
Whether expected or not, crossroads are always life changing. In those uncertain times be sure of this: God is ultimately and uniquely trustworthy.
Prejudice is a learned trait, but it can be unlearned. It takes a renewed mind to remove the blinders of prejudice and see people for who they are...instead of what they look like.
As time passes a marriage can easily become neglected. And neglect makes it susceptible to harmful influences. But a marriage that’s given care an attention thrives. The honeymoon doesn’t have to end!
Your response to hard times is an indication of where your trust lies—in yourself or in God.
