From This Day Forward

God's Word tells us that the tongue is a powerful weapon. In fact, the tongue is described in Proverbs as being as sharp as a double-edged sword. As a result, you must guard your words faithfully when you fight fair.

Talk: Compare how each of your families dealt with conflict while growing up and share how that shaped the way you handle conflict.

Pray: Ask God to give you the right words to say to your spouse when you fight fair. Ask Him also to help you speak life-giving words to your spouse at all times.

Do: Express your love to your spouse by writing a note of encouragement and sending it to them via letter, text, or email.
