Have you ever been around a couple who constantly cuts each other down? Or maybe you’ve been around a couple where one of them makes jokes at the other’s expense? Possibly, you have even had the experience of a couple down right duking it out in your presence. Maybe you are this couple. Why is it so easy for us to says things at the expense of others? We do it all the time in the name of humor. Unfortunately, it does not edify. Have I told you lately that my husband is amazing? If someone ever came to me and said, “Cindy, girl, your husband was doggin’ you today and sayin’ nasty, nasty stuff about you. You might wanna hode yo hoops and take him out!” I wouldn’t believe it. Not because he isn’t capable of it, but because it’s just not likely. He’s done a lot of things but he doesn’t do this. Why? Because we decided early on in our marriage that we weren’t going to be those couples like the ones mentioned above. We were going to speak well of each other. We were going to honor one another in public. If a matter needed to be addressed, we’d address it at home…not in front of others to try to get some point across with a little chuckle. I’ve failed at this more than I’m proud of. And the moment I do it, I am immediately disheartened. I don’t let any grass grow under these size 9’s so I go to him and ask for his forgiveness without delay. What is it for your marriage? What is important to you?
