This was my great plan until that still small voice whispered three little words, “What about you?” Those words stopped me in my tracks. My perfectly crafted rant to my husband, which likely would disastrously ended in an all-out argument, would have to wait. I realized for the first time in a long time that I was a hypocrite.
Couples, how many times do we badger our spouses over the things we think they are doing wrong, all while overlooking our own failures? Clearly, this woman was very guilty of this. Proverbs 21:2 says all our ways seem right to ourselves.
I think that’s probably why God designed marriage in the first place. On your own you tend to get more and more immune to your own sin. The silver lining of the hard moments in your marriage is that these are your chances to grow!
The next time you are tempted to bring your spouses failures to their attention, first take a moment and think through the part you play in the situation. A better approach is working on yourself before trying to reform your partner.
This way God grows in you and grace is shown to your spouses through you when they do miss the mark. That’s how God designed our homes to run. You will never be a better judge over your spouse till you first judge yourself.
And also, for every speck of sawdust you see in your spouses’ eye, there is a log in your own eye. Until you first remove the log in your own eye, you will not see clearly to remove it from your spouses’ eye. God bless you
