Greg’s thoughts on the marriage garden…
Frost can kill a garden…When you are angry, don’t give your spouse the cold shoulder to punish them, you may ruin all the fruit that you will be HUNGRY for later.
When you have a conflict with your spouse and then you are short, rude, and “cold” to your spouse, you are jeopardizing your own satisfaction. You will regret it at a time when you need your spouse the most, therefore be mindful of your marriage garden and don’t freeze out the fruit you will need in hours, days, weeks, months or years to come. The cold shoulder to your spouse doesn’t JUST punish your spouse, it offends God and jeopardizes your own marital nutrition.
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. ~Ephesians4:29
