“Dear children, let us stop just saying we love each other; let us really show it by our actions” (1 John 3:18 NLT).
The Bible says, “Let us stop just saying we love each other; let us really show it by our actions” (1 John 3:18 NLT). We can talk a good act: “I love people.” But do we really love them? Do you really love them? Our love is revealed in how we act toward them.
“About fighting and arguing”
Fighting comes from arrogance or when somebody feels inferior or somebody assumes he/she knows it all. When we consider this, we will learn something about an atmosphere of constructive debate.
Be mindful of the words you use. Try to always keep your counterpart’s situation in your mind when you are having an emotionally loaded conversation.
Force your ears to listen even when they are going deaf. You have two ears. One for yourself and one for your wife.
And please, never be too proud to say the following words: “I was wrong. I am sorry. Please forgive me.” This way you fight without leaving scars.
When having the next argument, put yourself in other person’s shoes and try to think from their perspective.
Don’t ever let the sun go down on your anger.
