“You will never be asked to forgive someone as much as God has already forgiven you.”
James 4:1-8 says when we quarrel, our passions are at war within us. Our need for our individual self and our need for our relationship.
This week at Liferoads, we discussed the importance of navigating conflict well and even growing from it. How when we allow God to complete us, as said in Colossians 2:9 (Amplified Bible), we are able to approach an argument without expecting, forcing or manipulating a flawed spouse to meet all our needs, but with more of a ministry mindset in which we strive to meet their needs. We offer forgiveness and grace, rooted in the security and strength Christ has given us, so we can love each other with all the best parts of ourselves.
