Yesterday I talked about pushing her buttons – the ones that bless her. What about the other buttons, the ones that offend, hurt and upset her?
In my mind, it is wrong to push those buttons – ever, for any reason. It is cruel; it’s using what you know about her to hurt her. It is the very opposite of love.
I doubt I will get a lot of argument about that, but if you agree, what are you going to do the next time you push one of those buttons? Can you be big enough to admit to her that you were wrong? Can you apologise, and can you do that without making any mention of what she did that got you upset enough that you decided to push her buttons? If you cannot, maybe you are not nearly as loving as you should be.
