Be Slow to Anger

Be slow to anger

Sometimes, it is hard to stay cool headed when you and your husband are having a disagreement. Sometimes your temper gets the best of you and your disagreement turns into an full blown argument. You yell at each other and say things in the moment that you don’t actually mean. Neither one of you want to admit you were in the wrong and you don’t want to say you’re sorry. The next time you and your husband have a disagreement or get in an argument remember James 1:19 “My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.” Listen to what your husband has to say, listen to his point of view or his feelings on the matter. Think before you speak. Process what your husband has said,  think about an appropriate response that will come across the right way and use an appropriate tone (this one is HUGE in my marriage). Most importantly be slow to anger. Absorb the information and stay calm. The best decisions and agreements in life don’t come from anger. Try to apply this next time you and your husband are having a spat and see how God can work.
