Disagreements in marriage are almost inevitable. We won’t agree on everything because we’re not meant too. God made us all uniquely different. So when differences arrive in our marriages how do we handle them? It’s possible to disagree without becoming bitter overtime. One thing Satan would love to do is to cause distance and bitterness between a husband and wife.
It’s important that we strive not to let that happen. We have to be willing to reconcile with our man if the disagreement gets heated. If we don’t apologize or let him know we’re hurting, that will grow each time and create a barrier in our marriage.
The Father doesn’t desire that for our marriages. He knows we won’t agree, but He wants us to learn to lovingly disagree.
We have to stay aware of how each other is feeling so we don’t let bitterness take root.
Strive to be a respectful and forgiving wife. Our husband is our best friend, our confidant, our man. So don’t let bitterness build a wall, let love push You to reconcile.
Father, thank You for our men. Thank You for creating us different and bringing us together. Help us to be loving when we don’t agree and to stay aware of our words. Help us to talk about hurt feelings so bitterness doesn’t build up in our hearts. May we be ready and willing to forgive. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil.
