Lisa really offended me in front of our kids ten days ago – true story – and we had to work it out. I hurt lisa’s feelings deeply yesterday morning – true story – and we had to work it out. Lisa and I don’t walk on water. We have a fantastic marriage but we also choose to sin against each other – to walk in the flesh – from time to time. So how can those two go together . . . a great marriage . . . and offending each other? It’s all summed up by loving each other through genuine repentance and real forgiveness. Do you know how to truly forgive each other and walk in close, loving unity?
Marriage seems to be tailor-made for offenses. Not in the early weeks and months of marriage but when the normal days of married life run into months and years. Learning to live in harmony with each other automatically places challenges in the path of being one with each other. Have you ever needed to forgive in your marriage? Have you ever needed to be forgiven? What does the Bible have to say about forgiveness – about how to go about forgiving someone who has hurt you deeply? In this new episode of Faithful Life Podcast, we discuss the topic and get real about our own journey of forgiveness and being forgiven in our marriage.
