The thing about being married is that, you or your spouse can mess up, make a mistake, or a bad decision (that doesn’t involve death or dismemberment, mind you!) and you or your spouse gets a do-over. Either one of you might be mad for a while, but then you talk about it and work it out and everything gets right with the world once again.
Forgiveness within a marriage is a powerful thing. It is also an eye-opener and a lesson to be continually learned. Being able to forgive your spouse actually shows you how selfish you are personally as a human being. Truth is, when we are the party that has been wronged, we often forget about how we have wronged others and also need to be forgiven.
And to think what Jesus went through for our sins. Forgiveness is some serious business, ya’ll. Think about it.
This marriage thang will teach you a LOT about yourself. Believe that.
