6. How are you going to deal with relationships with the opposite sex? What do you intend to do concretely to protect your marriage from the open doors? Another important principle to apply in conflicts is to talk to your spouse first before talking to someone else. It is a principle that Christ taught about the management of sin in general. In Matthew 18:15 he says: “If your brother opposes you, go and show him his fault, only between the two of you. If he listens to you, you`ve won your brother. We will know more by the parable of Matthew`s ruthless servant 18:23-35. In this story, a servant owed a lot of money to his lord, so he asked for grace. The Master has forgiven him for all his fault. But this servant had a companion who owed him less guilt. The servant with guilt asked for clemency, but the servant who had been forgiven threw him in prison instead.
When the Lord heard about it, he became angry and threw in prison the servant he had already forgiven for being tortured by the inmates. Listen to what Christ said to his disciples about this parable: “This is how my Heavenly Father will treat each of you if you do not forgive your heart” (Matthew 18:35). Once you understand this, you will be ready to accept one of the most surprising truths about marriage: most marital arguments cannot be resolved. Couples spend year after year changing their minds – but that`s not possible. This is because most of their differences are based on fundamental differences in lifestyle, personality or values. P. 27 Philippians 4:6.7 – Do not be anxious, but let your entreaties to God be known through prayer and prayer. Christians should do this for all our problems, but especially for our marital problems. If we truly believe in God`s power, then we will pray zealously about our marital problems.
Reversing is a decision and an obligation to change. We have to realize that we have made a mistake and we have to agree to do the right thing. If sin is the cause of our problems, we will never correct our marriage until we return. Luke 13:3; Acts 5:30 p.m.; 2 Pet. 3:9] Some people follow psychologists, marriage counsellors, etc. Others are guided by feelings. People get divorced and say, “I don`t feel anything for them (or for him anymore).” But no amount of feelings can change what the Word of God says.
