2. Good Communication

Communication within marriage can be very difficult!

Wires get crossed and simple words and sentences are taken far out of context, and strife starts to build. We say things rashly and without thinking to our spouses, and we leave them feeling hurt and we act selfishly towards them.

But God calls us to a higher standard. We are to guard our mouths (Psalm 141:3), speak wisdom (Matthew 12:36-37), be slow to speak( Ecclesiastes 5:2) {especially angry words (James 1:19)}, and learn to communicate well with our spouse.

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” ~Proverbs 15:1

Communication is critical to any relationship, and doubly so in a marriage. Having good communication with friends and family is beneficial, sure, but how much more imperative is it that you have quality communication with the person that you are one with?
