I am sure you are wondering how is this relevant to couples.
Some couples want to fight to finish.
They prefer to win the argument all the time.
There esteem is tied to their winning the argument.
If they have a misunderstanding, their opinion must be right.
They forget that, we all see things from a different view point, and that there is always two sides to a coin.
When there is an issue with the husband and wife having contrary and opposing view point, peace must eventually reign.
Conflict resolution is one of the things couples must learn.
Where heated augment must be avoided.
Arguments should not degenerate into strife.
Remember God’s standard, ‘the sun must not go down on your wrath’ and ‘Be angry and do not sin’
Eph 4:26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
No matter the argument, the couple must never raise their hands on each other,
Never make the mistake of talking when angry because you will say things you will later regret.
Wives, learn this, your husband is the head of the home.
Your calling as a wife is that of submission and it includes all areas.
Your husband is egotistic and he is a fighter.
You will do better if you learn to pray about things more rather than get into a fight.
Husbands, you are to love your wife unconditionally.
Demonstrate love in all you do, in words, thoughts and actions.
Learn to pray together and be quick to say ‘I am sorry’.
Let every misunderstanding draw you closer rather than apart.
God bless your marriage
