Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry Ephesians 4:27
This scripture holds dear to my heart as me and my wife have used it in the past during our marriage. There is an important message to be delivered here, don’t let your disputes go unsettled. When we separate from each other angry, this allows room for Satan to move in and do his work.
As Jesus said a house divided will not stand, this same principle applies to our marriages. Any division allows opportunities for Satan to move in. As a family you must stay united together, even when its hard.
Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need. Ephesians 4:28
We must learn from our mistakes and turn it into a positive. We must learn from the things we were doing wrong and make them a lesson. Sometimes when you go through a difficult situation, it makes your marriage stronger and wiser.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
We must remember that words can either uplift or destroy people. When you talk to your spouse what kind of talk is coming out of your mouth? Are you lifting them up or bringing them down? Its important we are encouraging one another and not poisoning your marriage with hateful words
All marriages will eventually go through a rough patch or be tested. If we apply these Godly principles to our marriages, we will thrive and not just survive. So next disagreement with your spouse, don’t go to bed angry, talk and work it out in Jesus Name Amen
