Love is kind


love is kindMarried couples fall into the trap of expecting their spouse to be kind and reserving any show of kindness until then. This is path to divorce.

Remember when you were in love? No mountain was too high, no sea too stormy. You spent time thinking up new and fantastic ways to be kind to your beloved.

People tend to “let their hair down” around family, which means they’re mean. Oddly, with strangers they’re nice. Reverse this and be nice to family. Be tender to your spouse.

If you will simply be kind (even if your spouse “doesn’t deserve it”), you could set your marriage onto a path towards renewed happiness.

1 Cor. 13:4 says: Love is kind.

  2. This is so true. I do let my hair down with my family at times. And I can be mean. It is one of the many struggles to change in my Christian faith. Thank you for the post. ❤

  3. Thank you, Pastor A. I really love your heart for married couples. I read a quote that said to use our quietest voice at home. 🙂 God bless you!
