If I may ask, what kind of words do you speak about your marriage or spouse? When last did you say something ungodly about your marriage or spouse? Or when last did you run your spouse down through your tongue? Today, your marriage is suffering just because of the same negative words spoken by your own tongue. What am I trying to share this week?
Our words can destroy the joy, peace or relationship with our spouses if not careful. Our own words can turn our marriage life up side down. I heard someone say that the tongue can be likened to keeping a time bomb underneath one's bed. The result will be devastating when it explodes. Spouses must learn to use their tongues wisely if they are to live a life full of positive things and not negative.
Many spouses have said some things which they later regretted, today things are exactly as they said about their spouse or marriage. It is very important to remember to think before speaking anything that concerns your marriage or spouse.
Always ask questions like do I need to say it or will it do any good to my spouse or my marriage if I say it. Is it really necessary or helpful. If the answer to these question is no, then don't go ahead to say it. It is better for you to keep your mouth shut. I know a certain lady who when her husband started coming home very late almost everyday, she said "I am telling you one of these days you will see, you will be beaten by thugs".
Just two days after, she received a call that her husband had been beaten to death by thugs. It is very unfortunate that we do not generally give sufficient attention to the power of our words, losing sight of the fact that our words have ability to create, bless and to curse.
The Bible in the book of Proverbs 13 vs 3 says that "He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction". Meaning, the tongue can turn situations to our advantage or to our disadvantage too. It can bring light into our marriages and at the same time it can bring darkness.
All I am sharing is that no matter what, let us speak positive things about our marriages, spouses and the children that God has given us then I am positive that it will be well with us. Have a wonderful weekend!
