Be Quick To Resolve Offenses and To Seek Forgiveness

November 23rd, 2016 Viewed 1667 times, 1 so far today

Man-Woman-Fight.jpgThe Bible is a practical book, teaching us not just who God is but how He wants us to live.  Within the pages of Scripture we see both principle and example of many different life choices.  The one I want to focus on today is the idea that we are not to let things go on long when there is an issue with other people.

In Ephesians 4:26 we read:

Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,

This is a very wise principle, for over time things tend to harden in our minds and the more time passes the harder it is to restore what once was there.  Indeed, while sometimes time will heal some old wounds, it won’t do it until forgiveness and repair have been had– and sometimes what happens is that time has healed the wound, but the relationship has already been destroyed and is now beyond repair.

Dream Vacation by Sreejith KThe Generous Husband is big on getting away as a couple:

Vacations … give us a chance to have fun together, and this is exceptionally important to our marriages. Shared experiences bond us together, and give us good memories to share for the rest of our lives. On a smaller scale, we need date nights, Saturday hikes, and the like for the same reasons.  –  How Often Does Your Marriage Need Time Away?

He goes on to describe how often he thinks couples should get away, starting with at least one date night every two weeks and on from there.

Time’s Effect on All Things

They say that time heals all wounds (or wounds all heels, depending on who you ask), but what I’ve found is that time actually blurs the truth. There’s another old saying that goes something like “Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it.” Both of these are at play in our country right now.

What would you learn about the founding of our nation from what we see today? How about if I wanted to see about the founding of Rome? Does it look anything like the current Italian government? If I looked at research from the past 100 years of government in France, would I know about Charles the Great?

Godly Husband: What Do You Care Most About?

olderhusbandandwifeheader.jpgHard question, guys.  We all seem to have something that we really enjoy doing, whether that’s watching television, playing video/computer games or working on the car.  For me, it’s blogging.  I find real enjoyment and pleasure from being able to write and share my thoughts and ideas.

Whatever the case, you will show what you care most about by the amount of time you put into caring for it and maintaining it.  Take a minute now– I’ll wait– and think about your day in terms of how much time you spend on what outside of working (or even when you’re working).
