“Death and life are in the power of the tongue…” Proverbs 18:21
I’ve heard Christian wives mutter and complain about their husbands, both behind their back and to their face:
“What’s wrong with you?”
“Why didn’t you do ______ right?”
“You spent too much money on that.”
“You should be more spiritual.”
Recently I came across a very wise statement, “Marriage is not sent to the grave all at once, but by a series of little digs.”
I wonder if we are murdering marriage with all of our complaining.
Murdering our own marriages, yes, but perhaps even graver than that – are we murdering marriage for upcoming generations?
When they see my marriage, your marriage, will they be blessed by it or repelled by it?
