God is up to something much more exciting in your marriage than you realize. He is inviting you to turn ordinary moments of conflict into extraordinary chances to grow toward him and toward your spouse. We will miss these opportunities if we don’t learn to look for them with a biblical gaze!
All major communication problems in marriage stem from a lack of truly honoring our spouses. Instead, we manipulate, using our words to pressure our spouse to give us what we want. Therefore, if we want to benefit from the opportunities we just learned about, we must constantly re-learn to honor our spouses with our communication.
