Give mercy, Get mercy

Does your husband or wife refuse to show mercy toward you? I mean, they’re mean! Every little mistake you make garners a big reaction from him or her that is extremely negative. You definitely don’t want to be around them for long. 

Can you see yourself in the above scenario? Are you the person being ridiculed or the one dishing out the negativity?

If you tend to be harsh with your spouse, instead of being harsh, how about showing mercy?

“Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy” (Matthew 5:7).

Even though, you married the best man in the world, he’s not going to get everything right.

When you realize this humble fact, you can then adjust your reaction to their mistake to be more caring, more loving.

Instead of making him feel stupid, why don’t you just help them complete the task?

Instead of belittling them, show empathy for their shortcomings, and help them develop a new way to take care of the issue.

Responding in love reduces the stress in your marriage.[bctt tweet=”Responding in love reduces the stress in your marriage.” via=”no”]

Can you imagine how hard it is to be free around someone that criticizes every little thing you do?

If you want to keep your husband, you had better start showing them respect by stopping the disdain of their very being.

This place is where couples thrive!

Where they can be totally free to share their wildest dreams without fear of repercussions.

If you want a better marriage, be a better spouse by giving the love of your life mercy. [bctt tweet=”If you want a better marriage, be a better spouse by giving the love of your life mercy.” via=”no”]It will be a gift they cherish forever…
