Spice Up Your Marriage

Since we all have problems with anger and offense, we can assume that the Bible would address it, and of course, it does. Proverbs 19:11 “Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.” Ah… now that sounds wonderful! If only it were that easy! The point is that we need a goal—the goal of Proverbs 19:11 to slow us down and give us wisdom in an otherwise crazy situation. If you struggle with anger management maybe this verse should be your focus this month. You can post it on your fridge or put it on your phone. Memorize it. Hold it close to your heart, because the more you become slow to anger and more easily overlook offense, the easier it will be to enjoy, laugh and have fun with your spouse.
