Each Word a Gift


Eph. 4:29 (Message Bible)
Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift.
30 Don't grieve God. Don't break his heart. His Holy Spirit, moving and breathing in you, is the most intimate part of your life, making you fit for himself. Don't take such a gift for granted.
31-32 Make a clean break with all cutting, backbiting, profane talk. Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you.

Let's apply this verse to our marriage today!!

I'm praying for our marriages!

Thank you for that verse Sue. Our marriage mentorship class just went over that verse Sunday.
Our discussion was that too often, married couples look at the scripture dealing only with marriage to apply to their marriage.
There is SO much more in God's word than just those passages that instruct us on how to respond to our spouses.

The Lord placed on my heart many yrs ago that when I am frustrated at my husband for ANY reason at all (even if it seems to be ENTIRELY his fault) - what I am to do is:
Ask the Lord what I have done wrong in the situation, and ask Him to help me change and make it right with Him and my husband.
Interestingly, there's ALWAYS something God wants me to see within my OWN self!
(Pray Psalm 139:23-24 the next time you're upset with your husband - and you'll see: God'll deal with it!)
Blessings, Lisa
