Criticism in a marriage contaminates the relationship. Whoever is doing most of the criticizing is impatient and looking for the payoff of the other person changing behavior. But the spouse who is the object of the criticism doesn’t see it that way and often rebels. Solution: Obey 1 Cor. 13:4 ‘Love is patient and kind.’ Next time we want to criticize ask the Lord to give you patience. He has to positively answer that prayer! Those are His own words!
