Ten Helpful Hints Needed In Marriage – Part 3

Ten Helpful Hints Needed In Marriage – Part 3

I just felt like taking these things one after the other and not just rush over them.

Most of the time, we get so much information that we are not careful to be grounded in what we think we know.

And a times, head knowledge is different from real knowledge. You don’t know something until you are doing it.

So please don’t get itching ears as the Bible says for just what’s new.
Let’s take time to be grounded and think about what I am writing about.

We have looked at
1. Know your spouses temperament
2. Don’t take each other for granted.

Today, we will look at:

3. Don’t Waste your energy being overly angry at your spouse.

We all get angry at our spouse. Our spouse do things we consider childish, silly, stupid, annoying, disobedient, etc but please don’t fuss over any matter for so long.

The Bible tells us to be angry but not to sin. Let the sun not go down on our anger.

Eph 4:26  Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

When we have these negative emotions, they do more harm than good.
We are to forgive our spouse and not allow a root of bitterness.

Don’t let us dwell on the negative things they do. If not, we give place to the devil. We allow unforgiveness, hatred, suspicions, malice, wrath, etc

Anger in marriage weakens our bonds in marriage.
We all testify to the time we were angry at our spouse and would not talk to them. Some times we are even on the same bed but wouldn’t talk to each other.

You may feel justifiable but you know what, little demons are rejoicing and having a nice time in your home and marriage.

If this is not controlled on time, it may lead to some other negative effects.

Take time to think about what we are angry about. Really, some of the times, it is not worth it. We want to get rid of as much negative emotions as possible from our lives.

Be angry if you must be but please get over it on time and move on to becoming a better person with a good attitude.

After all, we all are a work in progress.

May God grant us more understanding.

God bless our marriage.
