I am continuing my exploration of the C.O.U.P.L.E. acronym developed by Emmerson Eggerichs to help husbands remember what God calls them to do. You can read the total acronym on my first blog on this topic 6 Ways Husbands Can Love Their Wives. In each post I’ll list the detailed info related to each letter of the acronym along with the scripture that backs it up. Don’t worry guys I will follow up with 6 Ways Wives Can Respect Their Husbands.
Today’s letter is:
P – Peacemaking
Resolve issues and makeup when you have conflicts, don’t hold grudges or teach them a lesson.
How To Do This: Say you are sorry when you are wrong; accept apologies when you get them.
Questions to Ask Yourself: When my wife tells me she is hurt or angry, do I easily admit I’m wrong, or do I get defensive, and express hurt and anger myself? Do I understand how apologizing makes her feel more connected and valued with me? Do I avoid discussing issues by saying, “Let’s drop it, or you need to move on?”
