Your word challenges us in how we speak and what words we choose to say to our spouse. With our mouths, we say we love and honor You, Lord, and with that same mouth, we choose to speak words that do not build up or encourage our spouse. Lord, forgives us and help us to speak words that are refreshing and uplifting to each other every day, and when we do need to share hard things with our spouse, help us in Your Spirit to do it with love and gentleness.
In Jesus’ name, amen!
[Jas 3:11 ESV] 11 Does a spring pour forth from the same opening both fresh and saltwater?
