How should a Christian treat his/her spouse during marriage? Seems like an odd question but why are so many Christians mistreating their spouses? Is it that they truly don’t know how or is it that they do not understand the bible they claim to be reading?
The other day some friends of mine got into a heated argument because I believe that if you are truly committed to God then you CANNOT go home and treat your spouse badly. My thing is if a person who is truly a Child of God there is no room in there to be treating your spouse badly. Now I am not talking about minor disagreements, for those are bound to happen. I am talking about treating your spouse so badly that the person would rather not live with you.
Now I don’t understand why as a Christian (who is praying regularly and reading their bible) would not know how to treat their spouse? Your spouse should be happy to come home to you at the end of the day. It is not rocket science. Let me even go further to say that there are many persons treating their spouses well and they are not even Christians. If we say we have the answers and we are inviting others to what we have, then please take a look at the way you are treating your spouse.
The bible tells us how we are to treat each other as husbands and wives. Those who do not know or are not sure should leave marriage alone until they know how. Our spouses should get the best treatment whether in public or private. If what we are preaching is true then a man or woman who is a committed Christian, will make the best spouse there is. That is my story and I am sticking to it.
