If you’re like me, sometimes you say things you wish you hadn’t. Maybe you’ve even rehearsed what you might say to your husband to “let him have it” over a particular issue.
I know, I know…you’re too spiritual for all of that.
But I’ve been there. Recently. I thought I had this issue handled. That I’d moved on. Obviously not as “handled” as I thought. The Lord reminded me of this verse, which was one I committed to memory many years ago. It is so true. I’ve seen it demonstrated positively and negatively in my own life countless times.
So, the next time you’re faced with the decision to give a harsh word or a gentle answer, remember that your decision will impact what happens next in that interaction! You have a lot of control over what happens in your marriage!
