Title: Shall We Kiss and Make Up?
Post by: Richard OFfill on July 23, 2009, 03:57:28 AM
My wife and I have had only five 'fights' that have gone from one day to the next. I can's stand to be upset with Betty. Is there something wrong with our marriage? When there are no 'fights' does it mean we are suppressing something?

That's funny.  Asking if no fights means there is something wrong.  I think we're addicted to sin and one thing that we (collectively) can't stand is purity.

With whom did Jesus quarrel?  Against whom held He a grudge?  To whom would Jesus not speak out of anger?

I have been married but sixteen short years.  My bride and I used to fight.  At one point we were wondering if our marriage would survive. 

Eph 4:30   And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Eph 4:31   Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
Eph 4:32   And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Over time my bride and I have learned to live less of self and more of Jesus.  We have less need to protect self, to be right, to be smarter, to have the last word.  This is the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in our home.  Our marriage has never been better.  I have never seen my bride happier.  Does this make us dysfunctional?

Those of our acquaintance who love Jesus seem to like us.  Those of our acquaintance who are not seeking God find us irritating.  Perhaps they would like us better if we fought more.

traveler,
it seems to me that you talk of your wife as though you were just married...
that is so sweet
I'm sure there is a secret of success in there somewhere.   :-)

Alright................................... :-D

1 Peter 3:10  For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

Titus 2:8  Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

1 Corinthians 13:5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

Ephesians 5:25  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;


Colossians 3:19  Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.

1 Peter 3:7  Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

1 Thessalonians 5:15  See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men <3956> * *.

Romans 13:7  Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.


1 Thessalonians 3:9  For what thanks can we render to God again for you, for all the joy wherewith we joy for your sakes before our God;


Proverbs 24:12  If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?

Proverbs 24:29  Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me: I will render to the man according to his work.


Psalms 38:20  They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.

Is true due benevelance always physical, can it not also be verbal and in attitude ?
