On Twitter I have been following @MarriageMentor. The following was sent by them a while ago:
“In what ways are you using your spouse’s sin against them, while conveniently ignoring your own sin?”
Isn’t that brilliant?! How very human of us, to beat her up about her sins, no matter how small, while ignoring our sins, no matter how large?
Yes, I am all for confronting sin, even especially in our spouses – but let’s not forget to remove the telephone pole from our own eye before we go after the saw dust in our bride’s eye.
