" Thus says the Lord of Hosts: Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another." Zehariah 7:9
Today's task: Show kindness to your spouse in a time of disagreement.
The past few weeks have been really hard. My husband and I have hit a parenting issue with out 19 year-old son that we strongly disagree on. We both believe we have the better solution and it has caused major friction in the marriage.
Yesterday, I made a conscious effort to change things. I reminded myself that although we disagree, our end-game is that we both love our son and want him to do well. The methods are different, the intent the same.
Then, I decided to show my hubby love, even though I was angry. I made his favorite dinner and spent some quality time with him in the evening. It helped me to live this verse and to put us back into each other's good graces. I still disagree with him, but I am letting him take the lead and being loving while doing it. It is a challenge. Blessings.
