January’s key for a successful marriage is COMPROMISE… the companion to this key is CONSIDERATE…
Not only is it important to compromise in your marriage, it is also imperative to be considerate to your spouse.
What does being considerate look like in a marriage?
We must be careful to not cause inconvenience or hurt to each other.
We must show thoughtfulness and sensitivity towards our spouse and be willing to put their needs and feelings before our own.
Being considerate to your mate is a selfless act and it sounds easier said than done, but the benefits reaped in your marriage are well worth it.
What does the Bible say about being considerate?
3. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
4. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
2. To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
1 Corinthians 10:24
24. Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth.
…and let us not forget Colossians 3:13
13. Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
When we truly love someone, we must be willing to put in the work in order to not only make the marriage survive, but to THRIVE!
Remember God will not judge us on how we are treated; but He will judge us on how we treat others.
