Today’s Scripture: And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. – Ephesians 4:32

The Greek storyteller, Aesop, said, “Familiarity breeds contempt.” In marriage, we often see this proverb play out.

Husbands and wives live in close proximity. They witness the best in one another, but they also have a front-row seat to the regrettable weaknesses we all possess. If we are not careful, this close association can create a lack of appreciation – and even scorn – towards our spouse.

In our marriages, we must be mindful to extend continuing kindness to one another. When we are exhausted and stressed by daily demands, we are susceptible to irritability. Our tempers become short, and our words become hurtful.

We must keep our hearts sensitive to each other’s needs, preferring our spouse in love. When we choose compassion over conflict and harmony over hostility, we demonstrate sacrificial love. We love the other more than we want our own way. The currency of love is sacrifice.

When divisions threaten, we must quickly restore the bond of peace in our relationships. Since Jesus so generously cleanses and accepts us, we must forgive and repair the rift. Healthy marriages make no room for cold shoulders, the silent treatment, or harsh accusations.

Familiarity need not breed contempt. Instead, our marriages can be marked by sacrificial love, gentle kindness, tenderhearted affection, and warm intimacy that grow through the years.

Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Prefer your spouse in sacrificial love. Practice kindness and tenderness towards one another. May the peace of God rule and reign in your hearts and home.
