Read & Reflect
Do not use harmful words, but only helpful words, the kind that build up and provide what is needed, so that what you say will do good to those who hear you.
How do helpful words apply to your marriage? Reflect on this when you and your spouse come together for prayer.
Lord, help us do something positive with our mouths today. Let the Holy Spirit tackle us every time we're about to say something sharp, critical, insulting, and unkind. Revive our vocabulary and help us use words that help instead of hurt, lift up instead of put down, and bless instead of bludgeon. Amen.
- Pray for at least 5 minutes together as a couple.
- Do something to bless your spouse today.
- Share a 15-second kiss.
