He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit, than he who captures a city.-Proverbs 16:32
Wow we have made it thru 5 weeks of Love Dare. How is it going for you? I know some weeks are harder than others but for the reward we are seeking, stick with the dare even if you don’t think it is having an effect on your spouse/marriage.
Think back to the last time you were irritated? What caused the irritation? What eased your irritation? Do you respond in love or anger?
Love does not get angry or hurt!
Yes, let’s keep it real. You will get irritable, angry, and your feelings may get hurt but that does not mean you have to respond in the same manner. Do all you can to stay calm and patient with your spouse. Don’t be just as quick to respond with crankiness or strife.
Being easily angered signifies that there is something bigger going on then what appears on the surface. Address the true issue instead of taking the frustration out on your spouse.
