eSeed: Spite Spat

Read Colossians 3:18-19 NIV

A fellow took a seat at the bar, and ordered a double. The guy next to him asked, “What’s wrong?”

“I just had words with my wife,” he said, “and she left me.”

“Tell me,” begged the stranger, “what were your words.”

Too many would rather castigate than communicate, desecrate than dedicate, retaliate than reciprocate, terminate than tolerate.

But a true companion forgives freely, assists readily, endures patiently, defends courageously, and loves sacrificially.

The Bible says, “Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.”

Prayer: Father, constrain us to go all the way to make our marriage heavenly and happy. Fill our hearts with Thy love that we may think love, speak love and live love: in Christ. Amen.
