(Read the following passage together, alone as a couple)
"An honest witness tells the truth; a false witness tells lies. Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing. Truthful words stand the test of time, but lies are soon exposed." Proverbs 12:17-19
Now pray with each other or for each other. If you don't know what to pray then ask your spouse how you can pray for them. It doesn't have to be long or fancy, just from the heart.
(Have a conversation around these ideas)
- Is there anything you need to apologize for?
- Have you spoken words you wish you could take back?
- How can you both work on building each other up with your words instead of tearing each other down with "cutting remarks".
- Look your spouse in the eyes and tell them one truthful thing you love about them.
Spend time just touching and looking each other in the eyes before you make love today.
