I was thinking…
I heard recently of a fist-fight that broke out at a wedding, between newly wed spouses! I am told that they had to sleep in separate rooms on their wedding night.
Indeed, a troubled way to start a wedding. And certainly a terrible way to continue a marriage.
You’ve noticed that the ones closest to us can cause us the greatest pain. We have to find ways to overlook light offenses, the fender-benders of life. However, deeper offenses demand a strategic solution—forgiveness.
We can overlook stuff, but forgiveness ends stuff.
How can we go from being fighting spouses to becoming forgiving spouses? Here’s a hint: it is impossible to give horizontal forgiveness, unless we have received vertical forgiveness.
What do you think?
